My Students

My students are eager, hands-on learners that are ready for more amazing opportunities in our classroom that allow them to think outside the box. We are a rural community. Most of these students have known each other since the start of kindergarten and have built strong bonds along the way. This has made our classroom community familiar and easy to work together on projects and goals.

I am truly blessed to have these kiddos this year, and I absolutely love their devotion to bettering themselves and our classroom.

They are hard workers and aim to please. Not all kids have a chance to use differentiated technology at home, so I would like to have the opportunity for them to use it at school and see all of the possibilities from using technology!

My Project

By adding the Osmo Hot Wheels Racer to our classroom, this would allow more opportunities of coding to my students. Students will have to problem solve with a partner or challenge themselves individually! Each race will be a new challenge for players’ brains and reflexes by interacting while the races are taking place.

With the Osmo Hot Wheels Racer and Puzzlets, students can explore problem solving tactics and visual thinking skills while coding with technology.

The Puzzlets allow for 50/50 Play because play time is evenly split between the real and digital worlds. Students will code with the tiles, while watching there coding skills come to life on screen! This will involve problem solving individually or with a partner.
