My Students

Our society is ever changing and becoming more technologically advanced. My students are blessed with the ability to use Chromebooks on a daily basis, but I am selfish. I want more for them.

I want my students to learn the basics of coding through fun and exciting projects.

My children have a long way to go to be on grade level in literacy and math. However, they thrive during science class. My students look forward to this part of the day more than any other.

My Project

My students come from a school where over 90% of children qualify for free or reduced lunch. Our district has suffered a number of cutbacks this school year. Unfortunately, I am teaching during a time that has a huge, sole emphasis on literacy and math scores. My students work as hard as they can in these subjects, but they truly shine during science. That is why I want them to receive the coding robots. My children will create a code or a path for their robot and share with a partner. Then, they will hypothesize about how the robot will behave. Once tested, my students will be able to discuss why the robot moved (or didn’t move) as expected. This will help them practice their skills in hypothesis as well as results discussion. I want my students to see how science can be put into immediate action. This is a time for them to question, discuss, and explore. Our district lost funding for our second round of science kits. I want to be sure that they do not lose their love for science.
