Mrs. Shearer from New Oxford PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I teach first grade in a public elementary school. Within my building, we have seven first grade teachers and approximately 150 first grade students. Our students have a great desire to learn and a willingness to work hard. They enjoy being challenged and we enjoy finding unique ways to teach and deliver our curriculum. Our students deserve the right to have real world experiences and understand how technology works. Our classrooms need a great mix of teaching to connect with each student!

My Project

The items I am requesting already have a purpose and reason. Preparing our students with technology is key today in education. These Bee Bots will allow us to connect our curriculum with technology. Bee-Bots are programmable floor robots that have been purpose-built for use with young students. The mats will allow the kids to code the bee to locate and find things on the mats (letters, words, math facts, map details etc). The students can rely on each other for communication and teamwork or they can work individually and exchange feedback. The goal is to connect technology, curriculum, and real world experiences!
