My Students

My students are energetic six and seven-year-olds whose brains are like sponges! They are enthusiastic and excited to learn new things! The majority of my students are visual, hands-on learners. I'm also excited that my first grade classroom pairs with our first grade hearing impaired students for inclusion opportunities.

School is a safe and happy place for my students where they remind me if I skip giving them a morning hug or high five!

Each day they come into the classroom excited about the day, and spend time exploring and learning together! I always have high expectations that each of my students will grow and learn. For many of my students, being at school is the best part of their day! I truly believe in each one of them and am determined to give them the help they need to be successful.

My Project

Last year our first grade team started a recess LEGO Robotics Club with our first-graders! This was such a hit! These additional sets will allow more students to be able to participate as they explore and create! The WeDo 2.0 Lego Robotics set comes with a curriculum package that covers life, earth, space, and physical sciences along with engineering. This will help address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering and math within the classroom.

Our first-grade team would love for more students to be able to experience the wonder of creating their first robot!

Whether our students are using these LEGO WeDo kits in the classroom or as part of our recess time Lego Robotics Club, our students are engaged in hands-on, exciting, engaging exploration! This project is part 4 of 8. We have also requested two replacement parts kits.

Our students are working together, asking questions, and solving problems on a whole new level. They have conversations full of discovery and wonder! They share ideas and help each other as they make scientific observations based on their own exploration. I love the pure squeal of amazement when they get the robot to move! Using LEGO's ensures they stick with the problem until they find a solution. This is the power of an inspirational and engaging scientific tool such as the LEGO WeDo 2.0. kits.

This program is suitable for children with a range of abilities and that is what our diverse population of kids require. By having to control a robot and seeing what goes wrong, students learn what they can and can’t do. This builds perseverance as they work together to solve a problem that at first, they could not figure out! They are limited only by the limits of their imagination!
