My students need the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. My students live in a small bayside community that was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy several years ago. Some houses in our community are just being fixed now and others are still waiting. I teach in a low-income school district which means many of my families work very hard to provide for their families with many of them working more than one job.
"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity The creative mind plays with the objects it loves" -Carl Jung.
My students are the best thing about my job. They are creative, lively and eager to explore our world. I look forward to seeing each of their bright sunny faces every day.
I am requesting coding materials so my students can begin to learn code as a language. I want to help my students by introducing them to one of the world's most used languages using a developmental appropriate toy. Children learn faster the younger they are and coding helps develop critical thinking and problem solving.
"Coding is today's language of creativity All our children deserve a chance to become creators instead consumers of computer science," - Maria Klawe.
Our project is for two sets of code-a-pillars with expansion sets to build upon their coding as they learn. By having two it enables two groups of children to work separate or together. We are also requesting two coding games to provide table opportunity of hands on coding. Coding can be done at preschool level and with these materials you can make it happen. Thank you for considering my project and my students.
