My students are creative and engaged learners. They challenge each other and myself to think outside the box and to question our learning. In my classroom, we have created a community based on exploration of our curriculum and respect for each others thoughts and ideas.
I want to challenge my students to be leaders, thinkers, inventors and, most importantly, problem solvers.
I enjoy exploring their thoughts, feelings and knowledge on the subjects we discuss in our first grade classroom. Challenging their reasoning helps them become better thinkers and problem solvers. I want them to question the "how" and "why" to challenges that are presented to them. This will help them not only in the classroom, but also as they become contributors to our communities and society.
As Albert Einstein once said, "Children are our most valuable resource."
Botley the Robot is a learning tool to introduce kids to the world of coding. I am looking forward to helping my students grow with new technology and introducing them to coding. So many of my students know how to use a computer, iPad, TV, etc. but I would like to expand their knowledge of questioning and knowing HOW these devices work. What makes them go? How do they know where to go? Using Botley the Robot, my students will learn how to code a machine to make it go in the direction and perform the commands they want it to.
