My Students

Second graders are so eager to learn and are still excited about going to school! Our students are an eclectic group that represent many different cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and families. They come together at our school that celebrates who they each are.

We want to build our future leaders, creators, artists, and innovators.

We believe that these students hold so much promise and curiosity and are excited to capitalize on both of those things! Coding has already become such an important skill to have and it will only continue to become more important. We want to build that skill early for our students.

My Project

We are asking for your support to secure Ozobots, Sphereos, and Code and Go Mice. These hands-on coding tools will allow the students to reframe the way they think. It allows them to solve problems in a tactile way and also serves as a basic introduction to coding.

The students will get to work in small groups, which will also facilitate their problem solving and social skills growth.

The various coding tools will also allow more students to find something that is better suited to their strengths and learning needs.

The students will have opportunities to solve easy tasks that can escalate in difficulty as the students' understanding grows. Having hands on tools will make the learning more real and fun.
