My Students

I have a class of fourth-graders who are bilingual in English and Spanish. Our school is located in an urban neighborhood, and all students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch. Almost 80% of our students are English learners, so they need extra support as they learn a second language.

The goal at our school is for all students to aspire to attend college and have a plan for a future career.

I try to give my students a variety of ways to learn and to share what they have learned with others by incorporating technology into the curriculum and providing opportunities for students to be creative. They enjoy being able to collaborate on projects that help them learn together.

My Project

In my fourth-grade classroom, STEM lessons are some of the most engaging learning activities my students participate in during the year. Integrating the different STEM subjects really helps students gain a deeper understanding of the concepts they are exploring. This also helps them understand that they can aspire to STEM careers in the future. Collaborating with each other to design projects and test out their designs gives students opportunities to develop essential 21st Century skills. My students love learning to code on their chromebooks. They are so excited by the idea of writing code that creates something new.

This project will help my students take their coding skills and expand them into the three-dimensional world.

It will provide an additional Dash robot and accessories so that more students will be able to learn robotics and coding. Students will be able to program Dash using the free apps and block coding. The Sketch kit will help students explore integrating art and math with technology. The hard case will help protect Dash when not in use and provide storage for its accessories. The tablet case will also provide protection for the tablet students will use to program the robot. Having a variety of accessories for Dash will give my students more options as they explore our new NGSS science standards and incorporate robotics into other areas of the curriculum.
