Girl Code

My students need more technology and books for our new classroom

My Students

This year is the first school year for my school. We are so proud to be entering the lives of a very promising and diverse group of children and families. My school has a school for boys and a school for girls. I have been chosen to be a leader of one of the first grade classrooms for girls. I am so excited about all that we will learn together. I've had the opportunity to meet my students and they are beyond ready for what this school year has to bring. They are bright eyed and excited about the things that I have told them that we will work on and experience together. Some of my scholars are coming to us with language barriers and some with weaknesses in areas of Math, Reading, Writing, and Phonics.

Education should be Fun, Rewarding, Efficient, and Accessible to all.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to reach such a great group of girls. Even though we may have barriers in some our areas, our challenges will not out weigh our successes or our abilities to work hard and reach our goals in this school year.

My Project

One of the significant things about our new school is that our girls are being taught to code at an early age. I have been trained by a very reputable organization to teach our girls to code through special programs and technology. The Kindles will allow the scholars the opportunity to explore and work on their skills together and independently. I believe in allowing children to learn at a pace that is best for them as long as they are able to reach their goals. In our classroom we will use the method, "I do! We do! You do!" The student's will able to watch me complete task all at once on our projection screen and with our class projector and document scanner. The books will allow us to work on our reading skills together so that the scholars will be able strengthen their reading skills and comprehension. In order to be successful in both reading and coding the students must have materials to help them to achieve their goals and work in the best learning environment possible.

Some of our scholars have been identified as having special needs and many others have language barriers.

These two factors alone could cause challenges in the classroom, but the sign language materials, apps on the Kindles, and teacher conference time will allow me to breakdown those barriers and teach all of the girls in our class efficiently.

Girls have so much more to offer this world outside of their traditional female roles. Coding will open many doors for our girls now and in the future. As we develop their Math, Reading, Writing, English, Science, and Economic learning skills, we will set them up to lead the world on an entirely new level. Help them unlock this "Girl Code" and break barriers!
