My Students

My students are eager learners. They come to school interested in what they are working on, but often lack the resources, at school, to fully develop their interests. The students come from diverse backgrounds. They all eat breakfast and lunch at school, and take a sack snack home at night.

The best thing to put into the hands of these eager learners are the tools that will inspire them, the tools that allow them to take control of their own learning.

My Project

LittleBits are magnetic circuits that students can use to build devices and understand how they work. With this kit, up to 12 students can be working with the circuits to build wonderful inventions, then explain them to their peers. The magnetic circuits make it so that there is no way for students to put them together wrong, and at this grade level, success is critical. It makes a difference in their school lives that students feel successful and want to continue to explore how things work so that when they encounter magnets, circuits, and inventions again in the higher grades they have a background knowledge and confidence that they can dive in and be successful with it.

With the Sphero educational robot, students will begin computer programming and this makes a difference in their home and school lives because every day they interact with computers.

It is critical that we begin to teach them the language that computers use. The more comfortable we make our students with using that language now, the more we prepare them for using that same language when they enter later grades.
