My Students

Housed in three separate elementary buildings, the K-6 students in our school district are provided with the highest quality education possible.

Although our learners come to us with different experiences, attitudes, and family backgrounds, when they walk through the doors of our schools, they become a member of a unique community of learners who are encouraged to grow socially, emotionally, and mentally.

Our students are curious, innovative, creative, and enthusiastic learners. They are special because they want to learn.

My Project

My students absolutely LOVE programming Ozobot to move along hand-drawn, color coded paths. However, the younger students often struggle to draw the paths wide enough or the codes accurately, which leads to frustration and disappointment. I would like to introduce them to the wooden puzzles designed specifically for use with Ozobot, as I believe this would be a great way to teach them the basics of coding in a very positive, fun, and engaging way.

Ozobot puzzles encourage creativity, as well as strategic and logical thinking skills.

Students can assemble the puzzles in a variety of ways to code Ozobot to move along straight or curvy paths, while at the same time programming them to speed up, slow down, stop, turn, change color, etc. I believe these puzzles would be a great addition to our Library Maker Space centers.
