My Students

My students in K-5th grades are curious and creative problem-solvers. They are incredibly diverse with multiple tech-savvy learning backgrounds. My students learn the importance of effort with diligence, and apply their learning through failure and trying again. Through python coding, my students take their projects to the next level with engineering and robotics.

My Project

My students will utilize LEGO Education SPIKE products in the classroom to engage and create hands-on learning environments that promote school readiness and reflect our school character culture. The educational learning theory shows that children learn best when they experience things firsthand with a meaningful context. The curriculum is aligned with state and national Computer Science standards and engages students to become more independent learners.

The target skills include problem-solving, comprehension, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and building confidence to ensure success with challenges.

My classroom learning environment fosters growth in perseverance, reasoning, precision, and addresses challenges associated with differentiated software coding languages.

The use of LEGO SPIKE kits helps students overcome difficulties and encourages perseverance when they experience frustration. Students stay motivated to continue learning rather than give up. Students will learn how to design and create working engineering solutions that represent multiple situations involving math. The design process enables students to demonstrate the way they solved a problem and provide a rationale to discuss alternative approaches.

Students work independently or in small groups to investigate the principles of design, mechanisms, and structures utilizing measuring distance, time, speed, and powered forces and motion.

Through this learning process, students will learn how to design and create working Robotic models that represent machine components used in real life.

By donating to our project, you encourage students to share their problem-solving skills with each other and further promote students' communication and collaboration skills.
