Gr. 4 Recess Makers Club in Action!

Recess Maker Club students are programming the Bee-bot to travel to certain destinations such as school, library, store, pool, airport on the mat.
Bee-bot is a wonderful tool to teach students the fundamentals of computational thinking. This robot can remember up to 40 commands including forward, backwards, left and right turns to maneuver around the floor. Students would understand and learn the concepts of sequence, coordinates, distance, and location.

Students learn basic programing concepts with color codes for Ozobot. 
Programing Ozobot is simple - you can do this by simply drawing lines and using colors, but you should start and end the line with black for Ozobot to read the codes.
Ozobot's sensors are designed to read floor signs about 150 times per second to detect red, green, blue, black and white areas and react accordingly.

Gr. 5 Korean Club students are learning to read syllables

After learning basic Korean consonants and vowels, students were able to put the consonant and the vowel together and were able to read syllables
The concept of syllables is the key to the Korean alphabet.
