    Testing for Bee-Bot Scavenger Hunt (The Gingerbread Man) by Renee Ewert
    Your lesson plan was easy to follow. I chose to make the pictures of the faculty and staff free standing instead of mounting them on the road ways. I don't like the tape residue! The students enjoyed finding the faculty and staff member whose card they picked. I would suggest having the students describe their version of the "job" for each faculty and staff member. That should be interesting. I plan to use this again next year when I get my new set of kiddos!

    August 14, 2007, I introduced Bee-Bot to students at Open House Today. The students loved it and wanted to keep playing with it. I just let them explore and they were starting to pick the turns and keep it going. I will take it out to home visits with a grid made of center activity pictures to discuss what we do in the classroom with students. August 23, 2007 Introduced Bee-Bot to AM and PM sessions as we did name recall. Students found it easy to remember the steps for programming. They loved it. We established rules about carrying it with 2 hands when given permission to carry it. We have talked about keeping it on the floor or at the center in which we are using them. They would like to name it, so we will work out a procedure for this next week. I will also be doing my "Little Red Hen" story sequence retell next Wednesday.

    September 8, 2007 I was unable to utilize the beebot robot this week. We have had baseline testing and special ed testing and staffings going on. I am attempting to work on my Five Senses Lesson Plan and it is going slowly, I hope to use the robots at the end of next week in the language rhyming center.
