Bilingual Blue-Bot Curriculum Engages Students Using Books
Our friends at the Latino STEM Alliance in the Boston Public Schools are empowering underserved students with their extensive use of Blue-Bots.
Lauren Cooke, who leads this program, tells us: "We pride ourselves on having really close relationships with educators. We piloted a variety of early ed products for teachers who were interested in exploring, but had trouble finding just the right fit. When we discovered Blue-Bots, we wanted all of our early learning partners to have them."
The Latino STEM Alliance has now developed its own K–3 Blue-Bot Curriculum, available for teachers everywhere to use for free.
At each grade level, a short bilingual book serves as a focal point for 4 lessons. Students build 3-dimensional scenes, create maps, and provide other ways for Blue-Bot to tell the story.
Even if your program isn't bilingual, these well-thought-out lessons are worth checking out.
For schools that have bilingual programs, Terrapin offers a printed Alphabet Mat in Spanish. Students can use the same mat online in the Bee-Bot or Blue-Bot emulator.
