Use your Bee-Bot robot to teach literacy. Teaching initial sounds and phonics with a Bee Bot robot makes learning to read so much fun. Bring critical thinking and complex problem solving into your word work centers with the use of robotics. Using robotics with kids ignites a love of reading by fully engaging your students.
Have your students choose a programming card, and then program the BeeBot to find the matching initial sound image on the BeeBot mat. Your students can record their code on the programming sheet.
This Initial Sound mat has images that represent all 26 letters of the alphabet. The programming cards include 26 alphabet cards and 26 image cards. You can use this mat in a variety of ways. Your students can choose an letter card, then find the corresponding word on the BeeBot mat. Students then develop a program to make sure the beeBot arrives at the correct destination.
Using robots with kids is a great way to teach literacy and infuse your classroom with STEM learning activities. Bee Bots are a perfect robot to use with elementary students. Your students will learn how to code while also practicing their beginning sounds. Make your word work and literacy centers engaging by fun for your students.
This Beginning sound BeeBot mat is made of heavy-duty vinyl and made to last year after year.
This Beginning sound BeeBot mat has 28 squares. The resource also comes with a downloadable file of programming cards. Simple print the cards on card stock and use the cards to provide a “target” for the BeeBot. Your students choose a card and program the BeeBot to move to the desired square.
