The use of „Bee-bot”, „Blue- bot” tools in children‘s educational activities

„Bee-bot”, „Blue- bot” is a robot that can be programmed with the buttons on its back. The bee is able to move forward, backward, turn right or left. When you press the green GO button, the robot starts moving and then the children watch whether the bee is on the right track. When it reaches the destination, the bee informs you with an audible and visual signal. Bee remembers a maximum of 40 teams. The robot is easy to control, so preschool children can also control it.

The object of the game: to correct misbehavior that occurs during anger.  The game teaches constructive patterns of behavior that will help you manage and overcome this feeling without endangering the environment. There are 9 ways to cope with stress that teach a child to consciously choose alternative behavior in stressful situations.

Tools: robot-bee, activity mat with corresponding pictures.

Process: Available game options:

  1. The child remembers an angry situation during which he or she did not control himself or herself, considers it and goes to the boxes that he or she believes would have helped to prevent the misconduct.
  2. Playing in a group. Everyone goes to the box that suits them best and tells their friends why this particular way of overcoming anger seems best to them.

A bee can also help in a specific situation where negative emotions turn into misbehavior. Then we offer the child a little bee help, together with the little bee the child is more confident in choosing an activity, and after completing it, the little bee is sent to the smiley box (reward), thus establishing alternative behavior.
