My Students

I have 20 students in my first grade classroom that need hands-on materials to learn science, technology, engineering, art, and math. They are kind, creative, and eager students. They get so excited and motivated when we do S.T.E.A.M. activities. I am also the leader of a Girls Who Code Club that has over 60 girls 3rd-6th who are eager to learn about coding and technology. After school I work with approximately 200 students K-6 in a program that teaches coding and computer programming. I work with almost 280 students who are excited about S.T.E.A.M. and I want to create fun, authentic, and unique opportunities.

My students need a variety of motivating, hands-on technology that will spark the interest of all of my students, especially my female students that are hesitant to learn how to code and learn about computer programming.

Having a variety of STEAM materials that can be integrated into all aspects of the core curriculum will show my students that computer programming is useful, easy, and a fun way to learn. I also want to motivate the girls in my class and coding clubs to become excited about coding and computer science.

My Project

Recently we received some new technology from a DonorsChoose.org grant that will not work with the out of date iPads that I have in my classroom. We have two Harry Potter Wands and two Coding Dolls that need technology that is up-to-date.

My students need an up-to-date tablet that will connect to our newly acquired coding technology that we received from a DonorsChoose.org grant.

The Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1" 1080p Full HD Display, 32 GB, Black - with Special Offers will be perfect for my students. This tablet will connect to 5 different coding resources that I have received with previous grants. The Fire tablet is a cheaper tablet than an iPad and will be easy for my students to use.

My students will be using the Kindle Fire to learn how to code and program using Harry Potter Wands and Coding Dolls with Siggys. The will learn coding through all aspects of the core curriculum. The Kindle Fire can also be used to work on A-Z reading, Prodigy, Lexia, Code.org, and other apps that our school uses. Students will also be able to read books and play fun games when they are finished with their work.

Without the Kindle Fire, our coding tools are useless. My students love learning about coding and want to use the wands and coding dolls, but without a working tablet, they cannot use these materials.
