My favorite part of the day is standing outside of my classroom greeting students and welcoming them to school in the morning! There are so many smiles and hugs! They love coming to school! They get excited to learn! They love hands-on activities! They love to work together!
There are 374 students in our school that is nestled in a small rural town south of Pittsburgh with over 67% economically disadvantaged.
Our community is caring! The parents cooperate and want the best for their children. Our school has grades 2-6.
Our students are limited in some experiences outside of school. We like to bring the experiences to them.
In the past couple of years, many teachers in the school have embraced the STEAM activities. We are trying to build on the program from second grade to sixth grade.
Teachers cooperate to see how to align the projects in a sequential order. The students are loving it! They can not wait until the next activity.
I would like to purchase 3 robots to use in the classroom. Students will work in groups programming the robots to perform certain tasks. They will be able to program the robots to move by using light and sounds.
Our second graders are ready for the robots!
After seeing the excitement students displayed after learning coding, I knew introducing robots was the next important step. Let the excitement begin!
I am hoping we are able to achieve this goal of getting the robots. When we began the coding process, we saw students so engaged in the learning process. They were excited about learning. There is not anything better than that as a teacher!
