We Code, Do You?

The Description

CW students are eager to learn and I want to give them the materials that they need in order to keep that positive school attitude.  Due to this excitement for learning, we have created a new program at our school- STEM. Pre-K through 8th grade students are participating in hands-on learning projects based on science, technology, engineering and math. This is now a regular special along with PE, art, and music. We are thrilled that our students are given this unique opportunity and I am very proud to be the STEM teacher!

With these funds I will  purchase the classroom pack hour of code robot special so we will have enough robots to use during our daily STEM classes.  To run the robots we will need 3 more iPads with protective cases.  I will also purchase a membership to Kodable so our students from Y5-5th grade can learn how to code.   This program is an excellent, fun, and easy to use resource for all of my technology classes.  It teaches computer science to today's students who will soon be tomorrow's innovators.  To learn more about these products go to https://store.makewonder.com/#/education and https://www.kodable.com/.

Thank you for your support for our Learning Lab!!!

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase... a smaller number of robots and iPads.

1st-5th grade students are working through 7 stations. One station per day when they come to the learning lab- Keyboarding, Word Processing Skills, Kodable, Ozobot robots, Coji robots, Lego STEM building and Snap Circuits. My K/Y5 learned how to use a Coji robot, mouse skills, and arrows on the keyboard. We are having so much fun! YES I LOVE MY JOB and these smiles!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!!!  :)  If you have Facebook- check out our learning lab page to see pics of all of our fun.

WOW- my grant was fully funded today!  Yes, I cried tears of joy.  I am so happy and excited to see the students with our new robots.  They will be thrilled.  We have used a free sample version of Kodable this week and the kids LOVE it.  They get so sad when they get to the end of the challenges and can't go any farther.  NOW we will have a membership and they can code as much as they want.  :)

Thank you to everyone who made this learning lab dream possible!!!   Love, Mrs. Flickinger
