Celebrating the Hour of Code

HOur%20of%20CodeFor two weeks in December Mrs. D had all students Kindergarten through 5th grade practicing coding activities using the Hour of Code website.  Kindergartners practiced using the JigSaw Puzzle coding activity as an introduction to the idea of coding.  1st graders used the Maze sequence to practice coding with Angry Birds while 2nd graders used the Plants vs. Zombies as a backdrop for coding activities.  3rd, 4th and 5th graders were introduced to the Hour of Code site using the Star Wars portion of the site.  After the introduction, Mrs. D let students choose from the many options available this year.  Many students did not finish their Hour of Code levels and returned to where they left off during their next rotation in the library/computer encore class time.

Mrs. D was excited to see how many students enjoyed doing the Hour of Code and she hopes to see many students choosing coding activities during their own choice time on the computers.DSCN1749  Check out the official Hour of Code website at https://code.org/learn today!
