Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students are lovely children who are open to learning new concepts and take a passion for learning more about coding. They are students who respect each other and their education. They value rules and have a tight connection in our classroom environment, creating a culture of fairness and hardworking.

My students take great pride in being successful in learning, especially in math.

They have a love for reading, a passion for social studies, a knack for science, but it's any form of math that gets them excited and engaged in challenging learning activities.

My Project

Earlier this school year, we had an opportunity to pilot a coding program for an organization not affiliated with our school. Part of the pilot was to use the Micro:Bit Go; my students LOVED them. After the pilot ended, each day, they'd asked, "are we going to Micro:Bit today." Each day I had to tell them no and explain why. Hopefully, not anymore.

The materials in this Micro:Bit Go project will be used once a week by all students, in a Micro:Bit Learning Center and integrated into my lessons weekly for bi-daily use.

The items we are ordering come with activities that can be used in all of the subject areas I teach.

The goal from now to the end of this school year [and the next] is to have my students code every week as I excite their interest in computer science. Please, help me make this desire come true. We thank you in advance.
