My students are hard-working, inquisitive second-language learners who come from families where Spanish is the primary language. They are taught in a bilingual setting so they can then transfer their academic skills and strategies to learning English Language Arts.
As research has shown, being bilingual is an asset to students, and these students work very hard to make sure they keep their native language while succeeding in English, also.
Students not only learn Spanish language arts, but also English language development, and English language arts.
They are curious, inquisitive, and smart. However, many come from families where their parents did not get a high school education or even speak English, which makes their progress in our educational system harder than for those who come from more privileged backgrounds. Almost 100% of my class is also eligible for free lunch, meaning they have limited funds and do not have access to some resources that more well off students can access.
Ozo Bots have been created for students to slowly enter the world of coding. They are fun, engaging little guys that allow students to learn the basics of coding and how to write code in very child-friendly terms.
My students would love to be able to enter the world of coding and increase their knowledge of computers and technology.
By giving to this project, you would be giving them the opportunity to become problem solvers and engineers. Through the use of these tools, they would have the tools to gain technological knowledge and creative thinking skills which are so necessary in many careers.
