We have been using our bee-bots during reading groups. One group is working with the bee-bots on a mat that I have prepared with the weeks spelling list. Student A has to tell Student B which word to start on and which word to finish on. Student B has to then find those words on the mat and program the bee-bot to travel between them. I have noticed a lot of communication amongst the students with this activity especially when it comes to identifying the word and sounding it out.

Student A: You need to travel from ‘spin to spot’

Student B places bee-bot on ‘spoon’

Student A: No, that is not the word I said. Listen to me again. Sssspppppiiiinn.

It is great to see them encouraging each other to make sure they each have success at the activity. Here is a video and some photos of the activity in action.
