For four weeks, our kindergarten learners are engaged in different learning experiences in our Makerspace using Seesaw, Makers Empire, Osmos, and Large Legos.
Today was the first day of using our Makerspace with our kindergartners. The kinder team suggested using the space and focusing on different ways for our learners to play, make, and learn. The next four weeks our learners will rotate through different choices - Osmo Monster, Tiggly Numbers, Hot Wheels, and Large Lego Building.
The goal is to continue to use this space as we start our Bubble Wand 3D Design Thinking project later in the year as well as adding other learning projects into the choices.
Dash had two new additions today in the CV Makerspace - puzzlet coding and xlyo.
Through Tryazon, our students have the opportunity to use Ozobot Evo in our Makerspace. The Ozobot Evo is a interactive smart social Ozobot that can be coded via the iPad as well as through the Ozobot website. It arrives in a organized box that includes a playground, markers, charger, and carrying bag. Our students enjoyed trying the driving app as well as the color dot game.
The Ozobot Evo charges quickly but due to the many things that it can now do, the battery life was less than an hour. This made it a little challenging since the Share Fair lasted 2 hours and the Evo had to be recharged. It will be fantastic for Hour of Code as long as it has a 20 minute time in between sessions to be able to recharge.
Students and families were able to enjoy the Makerspace during Share Fair this Thursday.
