My Students

My students are amazing and diverse learners! At our school, we have over 50 different nations represented in our student body. My kids come from all over, and each one is awesome.

We embrace the spirit of STEAM and the Makerspace concept of learning.

I teach the kids that learning is about making mistakes, getting messy, and learning from the messy mistakes we make! We try to follow engineering principles when working, which requires students to try things out, and then tweak it and make it better each time they work on something. These little kits called WeDo 2.0 will encourage STEM building and then give them exposure to coding using a block style language. The great advancement with the 2.0 kits is that they do not need to be plugged into a desktop computer like our old ones. These can be connected to iPads with Bluetooth!

My Project

These WeDo 2.0 kits will reach all of our students in grades PreK-5 by allowing them hands-on experience in engineering and then applying the principles of coding to get them to work. Having these kits will teach the kids how to persevere and not quit when things get challenging. It will allow them to successfully build and construct using LEGO, then apply all the practical skills they will be learning in the new Library Computational Thinking curriculum.

Coding teaches kids to create, refine, and keep changing and adapting things to make them better!

All students in grades PreK-5 will be using these kits in our Makerspace stations in the media center. They are so easy to use that our PreK students will be able to build things with them, and so sophisticated that our 5th graders will be able to use them to create moving things like earthquake simulators and floodgates with sound effects and visuals! What an engaging way to enhance research and other learning than with moving codable products!
