My students are in Free and reduced lunch program. We are a Title I and Title III school. We have a lots family that get Bell Program. We are working very hard to provide resources for our students in order to keep going with a Growth Mindset philosophy. We are looking to support our students learning not only in the academic areas but also in the life experience.
Having New Comers in my class, is a big responsibility in order to provide them with skills and resources to close the gap in the learning process of the new language.
As a teacher with many English learners, it's important that every student receive an opportunity to be college and career ready. Computer science will be necessary for my students to achieve this goal. My project centers on using Lego WeDo technology to facilitate academic language acquisition for all student regardless of their English proficiency. In addition, students will have mathematical concepts reinforced and collaborate with their peers to learn how to build and perform tasks with their creations.
The LEGO WeDos can help to support mathematics, self confidence, and algorithmic thinking to create learners who are risk takers and solution finders.
The projects they create and build will be implemented into mathematics curriculum, science curriculum, and English Language Arts. Students will keep blogs about their experiences while building which will feature images and video.
My ELL students will be able to create without limitation of the language, and after their project is culminated they can share it with the world.
