My Students

I teach a program for gifted and talented children in grades K-4th. Our program at school has a very small budget and only covers basic supplies for the kids. I have around 120 identified students in my building. I want my students to be 21st Century Learners.

My students are eager to learn and I am always looking for new ways to keep them interested in what we are learning.

My students have a thirst for technology! Our school has a STEM initiative going on, and we are all trying to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into the things we teach. Engineering is driving job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. Keeping up with today's changing youth is increasingly challenging, but these kids deserve the best. I want to give them the world.

My Project

My students will be using the Sphero robot to learn to code. Learning to Code is an essential learning tool for the 21st century learner. We have a small set of them currently so this extra robot will help by adding an extra robot to our set. The chariots will be used in a chariot building challenge that will be presented in class. Students will learn about the history of chariots and then research and engineer their own chariot for a chariot race that we will have in class. Students will go through the engineering design process to complete this project. This challenge is both exciting and is a project based learning activity.
