My Students

Transitional Kindergarten grade students are an inclusive mix including special education students, English language learners who love exploring, playing to learning, and creating. These students like to discover and enthusiastically share their ideas with their peers.

Students at our school are inquisitive and compassionate.

They collaborate across levels with buddy classes to promote empathy, patience, and perseverance. 60% of our students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged homes. Many of our students do not have access to the innovative technology in their homes. Our district provides classroom Chromebooks for students, but their educational experience would be enriched by innovate tools. My students are eager for 21st century challenges and need to engage with STEAM through a variety of tools to master the skills to succeed in their future we have yet to imagine.

My Project

I have selected multiple coding robots including Bee-Bots, Botley The Coding Robot, and Think & Learn Code-a-pillar to give students the opportunity to explore coding. The robots will enhance our emerging computer science integration as they learn to create code. Students will dive into STEAM and discover that anyone can code. These robots are a new way to integrate technology, coding, math, art, problem solving, team work, and science.

Students will get involved with problem solving through the experience of coding.

They will work in groups to collaborate with hands-on experience of coding. I will be incorporating all types of academic lessons that utilize the robots to teach reading and language skills, math, and science skills in a fun and engaging way.
