My Students

I have 22 students who love to learn. Because we are a Title I school, my students do not have some of the extra opportunities that other students have. But does that hold them back? NO WAY! I love that even though some of them are English Language Learners, they want to learn everything they can.

Each student comes into the room with so much excitement to see what they will be learning that day.

I am so proud of them and how they learn each and every day. You would be too if you met them!

My Project

Bee Bot is more than just a lesson on coding. With Bee Bot robots, my students will also be practicing counting, sequencing, problem solving, estimating, directionality and vocabulary. These are all some pretty amazing 21st century skills that all our students need.

Bee Bot uses a 6-inch grid system (called a map) to move on.

Each forward key moves Bee Bot 6 inches forward. Through the use of a pre-made Bee Bot grid, or one I make for myself on the floor. Bee Bot can be used in any type of lesson.

Not only can Bee-Bots be used to teach coding, it can be used to teach anything! It can be used to find the letters in their names, learning shapes and colors, mapping skills and so much more!

Coding is a must for our students!
