    Lesson Narrative
    Summary: Students will review and identify personal pronouns and code the dash robot to move toward each personal pronoun on the grid mat.
    Warm Up: Review personal pronouns
    Activity 1: Divide students into small groups (suggested number is four in a group, no more than five). Assign the students the following jobs that they will rotate every five minutes: Leader, Timekeeper, Coder (holder of the iPad), Recorder. Place the robot on a “start” square. Students identify a personal pronoun on the grid mat and then code the robot to move to that pronoun. Teacher circulates to ensure students are correctly identifying pronouns. Students return the robot to the start spot and continue coding to the next pronoun. Once all pronouns have been identified and written on their worksheet/paper, the teacher will review answers.
