Tech Integration at EMES
Robot Turtle in First Grade
During Tech Integration Blocks 1st graders have been learning to code using the game Robot Turtle. Robot Turtle is a board game that teaches young students how to code. Through Robot Turtle, students are creating clear sets of directions in sequence and practing their understanding of directionality (left, right, forward). Sequencing and directionality are foundational skills that cut across curricular content, being essential to both math and reading. Oh and did I mention it is also really fun? If you know a EMES first grader, please ask them about Robot Turtle.
