My Students

Welcome to our fifth grade classroom! We are an energetic class who loves exploring new ideas and concepts. We spend our days exploring and learning about reading, math, and STEM activities. Our school has the highest poverty rates in the district with over 60% of our students receiving free or reduced price lunch. Although our class may struggle with economic and social difficulties outside of school, when we walk through the door to class, we are one as a school family.

In our class, we work together to have fun, make mistakes, and learn!

We come from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of world experiences. As we approach middle school, we are learning to work together, learn from each other, and understand the similarities and differences that make us all unique.

My Project

My students love programming their robots and creating stories to help build social skills and teach younger students. They are constantly exploring and creating through their experiences. The use of robots encourages them to try new things and learn from exploration, trial, and error. They are learning to document their ideas and imagination through their writing. However, documenting their stories through writing often becomes a daunting experience. Many students struggle with the process of organizing their ideas, planning their events, or just getting their thoughts down clearly on paper.

Using iPads to program and control their robot and access apps, such as iMovie and Book Creator One, helps to keep students more engaged and maintain interest and stamina while constructing ideas and telling their stories.

While the robots give them the creating inspiration, story crating apps provide students with an outline, planning pages, and structure to help guide students to document their thoughts and ideas. Students can create their stories and expand upon their ideas using their favorite tools: technology!
