Kindergarten students are using simple coding commands to program a Blue-Bot in order to practice addition during their center time. Jenny Azar and her students were willing to give this a try in their classroom, and they love it. It is so easy to use. The students are not only practicing skills in their everyday curriculum, they are also learning those soft skills of collaboration, teamwork, and Growth Mindset.
This class is getting a head start on their technology curriculum for this coming year in which they will be seeing terms like algorithms, coding and sequencing--all of which they are doing while using the Blue-Bot to learn in a fun and engaging way.
