My Students

Creative, wild, and talkative describe my first graders! They are full of energy all the time. It is challenging to keep their attention for longer than 5 minutes. My students love good picture books and making motions to go along with words they learn. All of my students are unique and come from different backgrounds.

My students have been teaching me as much as I have been teaching them.

This is my first year teaching and they have given me many learning experiences. The school is in a low-income area so sometimes they have challenges they are facing at home, which makes it even more difficult to focus. I cannot wait to see where they are at the end of the year. I have seen so much improvement in them and will continue to see them grow.

My Project

Having Botley the Coding Robots in our room would enhance the learning and make it more engaging. I plan to use them by creating a map of sight words such as after, down, music, etc at each destination. The students must code Botley to get the right word. My students usually come in below level and it is hard to motivate them sometimes, therefore I think having technology, that they do not get to use at home, will help motivate them!

Students will use Botley for various academic purposes as well as building 21st-century skills.

The students learn direction and how to program the robot by using codes. They have to have the right code to land on the word. I am also trying to create flexible seating options in my room and would like to try the chair as one of the options. Students could use this chair to sit in while programming the robot.
