My students are eager and energetic first graders. We pride ourselves in showing great character in and out of our classroom. We are Jr. Panthers! Our 'Just Be Jersey' theme is seen in our district and within the community loud and proud! We have students from smaller outlying towns that come to our building for Pre-K through 1st grade. My first graders are eager to collaborate with each other, other first grade rooms in our building, and with a first grade classroom in another school district through Google chat and Skype. This year we’ve been creating technology experts in our classroom using coding and robot technology. Unfortunately, we have too many hands and not enough tools for coding success in the classroom.
Having the Botley robots in our classroom would create opportunity for my students to advance their ability in coding. Currently we are able to share two coding options for our kids. The class looks forward to their special day to use the materials because we lack the hands-on coding tools necessary for all classmates to participate in a daily schedule. My goal is for my students to have the opportunity to learn coding and build confidence in technology tools in our classroom. Our students could partner, collaborate in small group or individually to excel with Botley the robot and coding. This device’s bundle package will be helpful to my students because it can be used anywhere within or outside of the classroom!
