My Students

The students in first grade are excited about learning! They have lots of energy and are working to develop their ability read, write, and build mathematical practices.

My students vary in ability.

Some are just learning their letters and sounds while others know how to read chapter books. Some students compute mentally while others still use their fingers. I try to make my classroom one that caters to ALL learners. I love watching them grow more and more as learners every day!

My Project

Beebots are a great way for young learners to practice basic concepts while having fun. Using a learning mat, students will code their Beebot to move to letters, words, sums, and more using basic coding skills. For example, I will say, "move your Beebot to the letter than starts the word apple" and they will code the Beebot to move to that letter. In math, I will say, "move your Beebot to the sum of 5+4" and they will move it to 9. They will be learning without even knowing it! Incorporating fun into basic exercises is essential when working with first graders!
