My class is comprised of 19 enthusiastic first graders. Our community is diverse, and full of culture and history. Students come from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. Our school is trauma sensitive with many students having multiple ACES. I want them to take pride in their work, their school, and their learning environment. It is my students time to shine, and I am so excited to help them achieve success. These students are going to grow into positive, active community members.
Coding is something I am so excited to introduce to my first graders. I was introduced to the Ozobots at a tech conference this month and I am eager to get this going in my classroom.
These bots are a great introduction to basic coding for elementary students.
We are living in a digital world, and this is such great way to be not only relevant to students, but to prepare them for tomorrow's world. I can't wait to have my students become engaged, excited and inspired by coding (and at such a young age!) We will be able to incorporate music and the arts with these bots--The possibilities are endless!!
