To Code or Not to Code

My students need resources to further their desire to learn about coding. The OSMO and accessories will let students discover what coding is all about.

My Students

My class is a fantastic group of hardworking, motivated, and giving second graders. Their attitudes are positive, and they love to learn. However, with many budget cuts and our low income community, it is hard to meet the demands of student needs.

These students have a love for learning and investigating new ideas.

They devour any challenge or new topic brought up in class. Recently, they have been asking for more opportunities to learn on the iPads. Since our budgets have been cut, and money is tight, we haven't been able to keep up to the kids need to advance their digital skills.

These students are from a low income community yet succeed immensely. Our school district is a Blue Ribbon School that recently was recognized as a Top Title I school. I'm telling you, these kids are amazing!

My Project

My goal is for my students to be prepared for their future and the future is technology. These items will help students explore the world of coding.

Technology is everywhere and by providing my students with a strong foundation in coding and technology, I hope to lead them on a successful pathway to future opportunities.

Students will use the Osmo and accessories in class to learn what coding is all about and how it applies to real world situations. They will integrate coding in various subjects and share their knowledge with other classrooms as mentors. I am trying to provide many different levels of coding for my students.
