My students need two Sphero Minis and cases to safely store them in.
My students are amazing! They are energetic, creative, and passionate ten and eleven-year-olds who bring life to our classroom every day! My students enter our classroom in the morning with smiles on their faces, ready to begin their days.
My students like to be challenged and like to learn in a variety of ways.
My students are very anxious to learn about new technology in this ever-changing world. We were blessed with the addition of Chromebooks a year ago to make our classroom 1:1, meaning every child has their own device. We are always looking for ways to be innovative with our new technology, and to find ways to tie it into science and math.
My 5th grade students are learning how to code and program. We have used online programs such as Code.org and Scratch to teach the basics of coding and programming to our students, however, my students need more hands-on materials to challenge their knowledge of coding and help them learn these vital 21st-century skills. That is why I am requesting two mini Sphero Robot Balls.
Students will be designing and creating code to direct the two mini Spheros while connecting, communicating, collaborating, problem-solving, testing, and failing, which are all key characteristics of 21st-century learners.
Teaching students to be innovative is another skill that is essential to today's learners. We need to teach these skills to our youngest students. Students that learn how to code and program at a young age will be given the head start that they need. Challenging our young students will teach them how to problem solve and persevere. Spheros allow students to learn at their own pace. As students' skills develop, they can push themselves to learn even more! This is an excellent opportunity for students who need that extra push!
