My Students

My second-grade classroom is transforming from a traditional classroom of instruction to a technology-infused classroom of collaboration and exploration.

At my school, students have a passion for learning, contributing to their school community, and solving real-world problems.

All of our school's students are eager to learn and have great potential. Our students deserve to learn skills that they can apply in their technology-rich futures and careers. I feel that providing opportunities for students to work with age-appropriate technology helps our students become better learners and gives them the foundations for a tech-infused future.

My Project

Students will be creating digital stories through stop-motion videos, and comics, with the help of LEGO pieces and Dot & Dash Robots.

In order to write with LEGOs students have to be able to find the right LEGO pieces to bring their stories to life.

With the clear bead storage containers, students will be able to categorize LEGO pieces into "people," "tools," "food," and more. The adjustable dividers allow students to organize the various sizes of LEGO pieces. With an organized LEGO kit, more time can be spent on creating stories, and less time spent on digging for the right brick. My students also need a hardware storage container for their larger LEGO pieces.

The charging cables will keep students' iPads charged and ready when inspiration strikes. With iPads at the ready, students can direct their LEGO actors to bring their writing to life! The charging cables will also help us keep our Dot & Dash robots charged. With charged robots, students can practice digital storytelling through coding and computer science skills.
