This project will provide hands-on learning integrated with technology in a way that is not only new and innovative in the early childhood classroom, but also engaging and exciting to students. We will incorporate the use of small robots, tablets, and apps to teach math concepts. Students will learn to code in a developmentally appropriate manner through games and activities. For example, once able to code with a visual programming tool developed by Google to help students, the robots will be used to practice math concepts such as addition and subtraction. Each month we will use robots (Dot and Dash) along with iPad to teach the second grade classes a lesson specifically targeting a math concept has been identified as essential to mastery of second grade math skills. Addition, subtraction, time, and shape attributes will be the focus of instruction.
