Our school is located in a Hurricane Harvey area near Johnson Space Center. My students come from all over the world and from many cultural and economic backgrounds. Many of the students I service in my GT pullout program come from low socio-economic or ELL backgrounds. Giftedness can manifest in many different ways, such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership skills. They come to my class with a million questions and a thirst for information!
My classroom environment encourages cooperation, collaboration, and communication.
Every day my room is full of activity as students participate in lessons that encourage not only academic growth but also social-emotional growth. My students love STEM challenges that allow them to apply 21st century skills in an environment where thinking outside the box is encouraged.
I am seeking four Sphero Sprk+ education robots to be used for teaching my K-5 gifted and talented students. The Sphero Sprk+ robots will be an effective tool to reinforcing STEM content while teaching students to code and gain social experience working together with their peers.
Students will work collaboratively to complete projects.
They will participate in a variety of STEM and STEAM activities with the Sphero. Projects will include, but are not limited to, coding a Sphero to navigate a maze, creating original pieces of Artwork with the Sphero, creating dance routines for the robots, and even participating in a battle bot competition.
