Gail has a wealth of curriculum ideas and experience using technology products with young learners. (This Bee-BotPirate Coding Game is one of our favorites.) The pre-conference summit showcases the latest technology for young learners through a fun day of hands-on workshops at the Miami Children's Museum.
Participants in the summit should expect:
"playful learning, exploration, and meaningful conversation for educators interested in developmentally appropriate and powerful uses of technology with little learners ages 3 to 7"
It's a great opportunity to learn and try out Bee-Bot and technology products from Terrapin and other vendors. The registration fee includes lunch and admission to the museum.
Quickly set up a Card Mat with Alphabet and CVC Word Cards
New learning cards make the Card Mat an even more flexible tool for teaching with Bee-Bot and Blue-Bot. Recently published Alphabet Cards and CVC Word Cards make it a snap to set up the Card Mat to teach language and literacy lessons using the alphabet and consonant-vowel-consonant words.
Alphabet Cards show a letter of the alphabet on one side and something starting with that letter on the other. With two decks in a set, it is easy to mix and match images and letters for a variety of lessons.
Similarly, CVC Word Cards show a word on one side and an image representing the word on the other. With the double-deck set, use words to find images or images to find words.
For a limited time, Alphabet Cards and CVC Word Cards may be purchased at a discount in conjunction with a Card Mat.
