An example of an iconic stage command is:

Bee-Bot is a great tool to include in your lessons. It actively engages students in their learning making the lesson more interesting for the students and makes the children have a greater understanding making the information more memorable. Bruner suggests that learners are able to learn any topic as long as the instructions are laid out appropriately. All learners follow the same route of enactive to iconic to symbolic representation when they have to understand a new topic.
Students can learn directions such as up, down, right, left

Bee-Bot can teach students simple directions and make children understand instructions clearly. Bee-Bot can engage students in group work also. Bee-Bot is great for problem-solving as the students have to figure out how to move the bee to the required destination.
There are many ways Bee-Bot can be incorporated into a lesson. In literacy, students can learn the alphabet as Bee-Bot moves through each letter, they can also learn spellings as bee bot can move along spelling different words. Bee-Bot can create a story as it can move around creating a scene on a story mat.
Math can be included in a lesson using Bee-Bot as bee bot can move through a number line teaching students how to count, students can also learn sequences, patterns and shapes as Bee-Bot can move through shapes creating patterns and sequences.
Overall, I think Bee-Bot should be in every school as it is an excellent tool for student engagement and for active learning increasing students' memory of the lesson. Bee-Bot is also a great tool to use to increase children's fine motor skills as they press the buttons to control the movement of the bee. Bee-Bot can be integrated into a variety of lessons, including geography, literacy, math's and History.
