My students need more robots to enhance their ability to code.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Each child in my classroom has a very special place in my heart. They have come so far as readers and writers this school year. It is a pleasure each day teaching each one of them!
I teach the best group of third graders in the best school!
When the students are in my classroom, we focus on reading and writing. We love to read and write and it shows in our daily work. I try to provide the most literate environment possible.
This year we have added robots to our classroom to enhance our coding ability and ideas for writing. Botley the robot will be an excellent addition to teaching the students in the classroom how to code and write creatively.
In our classroom, we LOVE to write stories.
We will use Botley to STEM our ideas to create narrative stories. We will then create settings and code Botley to "act" out the creations we make.
Robots are a great way to engage students and to motivate them to write more and add detail to their stories. Botley is an awesome robot that will not only teach basic coding, but inspire more creative writing.
