My students are eager to come to school every day. They are an amazing group of students that are excited to learn through hands-on exploration and the use of technology. The students enjoy working with partners and in small groups. The majority of the students do not learn through the typical styles of teaching. They benefit most from a combination of a traditional style of teaching paired with the ability to manipulate a concept through tangible objects.
Being a Title I school, many of my students face challenges in their daily life.
A large number of the students and their families are living in shelters across New York. Despite this and other hardships, the students continue to come to school ready to learn.
I am requesting multiple sets of the Lego Education WeDo Core 2.0. This will allow my students to have exposure to the wonderful world of coding. As the world becomes more technologically advanced, I want to provide my students with such learning opportunities.
The Lego Education WeDo Core set will help catapult my students into a world of exploration and open many possibilities as they take this educational journey that is coding.
The use of the WeDo sets in class will also provide my students with opportunities to problem solve while working collaboratively with their peers. The use of the sets will also help the students further develop their creativity and require them to develop and perfect their ability to speak in front of groups as they explain their thinking and the process that will go into their coding projects. These are skills they can use throughout their school years and in their future careers.
