My Students

My students are curious, thoughtful, and inquisitive learners! I teach Gifted and Talented students in grades Kindergarten through 5th in Jacksonville, FL.

Many of my students work above grade level and need curriculum that will continue to challenge them and allow them to advance at their own pace.

While attending a field trip to a STEM Lab at our local university, my students were introduced to the WeDO robotics program and they were instantly engaged. This activity allowed them to be creators instead of consumers of technology.

My Project

The Lego WeDo sets will be used in center rotations allowing small groups to access the technology and building sets. Students will work in teams of (2) to research, build, and code the robots. They will learn how to effectively communicate and work as a team to achieve their project goals.

LEGO WeDO kits will inspire creativity, ingenuity, and problem solving skills.

The WeDo set is the perfect program to teach students the basic building blocks of coding because it combines computational thinking with hands on building in a fun and engaging way. Students will be able to identify weaknesses in their model or code and figure out solutions to non-routine problems. They can also choose to create their own projects and coding programs for their classmates to try.
