Laguna Road took another step forward this week by introducing another resource for introductory coding, Bee Bots! Kindergarteners took their time to learn about these tools for teaching by exploring different mats with challenges associated with each. Some involved spelling certain words while others focus on adding and subtracting on a number line to reach a desired tile. After having already experienced coding with other Robotics the students were intuitive in their use of the Bee Bots. I can’t wait to see what these kids can do with their newest tools for coding!
