Second Graders Get Creative with Coding

Second graders in Ms. Sudano’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School are perfecting their coding skills. They recently learned how to use OzoBlockly, a block-based editor, to create programs for their Ozobots. Ozobots are robots that are designed as an introduction to coding where students use color combinations to move the Ozobot on a path from one location to another. Ms. Sudano’s class used a track with different paths and coded directions to maneuver their Ozobots to the end.

Using OzoBlockly, the students taught their Ozobots various movements, light and sound patterns and programmed them with notes to play songs. After students became comfortable with programming the Ozobots, they used their critical thinking skills to solve various challenges to get their Ozobots to the end of the path.

Math was the key to unlocking a recent challenge at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School. Fourth graders in Ms. Cranmer, Ms. Spizuco and Ms. Zecha’s fourth grade classes were virtually “stuck” behind seven locked doors as part of a math lesson. Following their math assessments, students put their knowledge to the test and challenged themselves to unlock different math skill escape rooms. Students were stuck behind locked doors and had to successfully unlock escape rooms focusing on geometry, numbers in base 10, fractions, algebraic expressions, and measurement and data. Each door needed to be unlocked with a unique code that can only be discovered by solving the given clues. Students needed to work together using their math language and accountable talk with their partners to unlock each door.

Following a lesson on the tools used during the printing process, the students rolled out the ink on the plates to create different textures and lines. In a subsequent lesson, students used a second layer of ink and spring-themed stencils to create negative space on the prints.
