Linking Beebots with Literacy....
Children are introduced to directional language they will begin to learn their right from their left, a key aspect of learning for children
Depending on the map they chose to use they can learn key elements of the map, for example our map introduced us to the different rooms in a house
The Beebot could also be used to learn about different sounds and syllables for example they could direct the beebot to the vovels on a map with the alphabet
Linking Beebots with Mathematics
The Beebots can certainly be linked with mathematics education.
Children could be asked to use addition to move the Beebot forward.
And use subtraction to move the Beebot backwards.
It could also be used to advance children's multiplication skills, if they are asked to move in multiples of tow for example.
