The Hour of Code

After a 3 month hiatus while I was on maternity leave I came back to work just in time to celebrate Computer Science Education Week by participating in the Hour of Code. At our school we had every grade level participate in a coding activity of some sort. We made use of the resources that code.org sent out in addition to some of our own. I mentioned my feelings about coding in a previous post and could not be more thrilled that the Hour of Code has received so much support and attention.

How Village School students are celebrating the Hour of Code:

  • TK – Introduction to Bee-Bots
  • K – Play Robot Turtles board game
  • 1st & 2nd Grades – Light-Bot Basics and Procedures
  • 3rd Grade – Tynker Puppy Adventure & Lost in Space
  • 4th & 5th Grades – Code.org mazes #1-20
  • 6th Grade – Continuing our ongoing Lego Robotics Unit

Even President Obama has joined the movement!

I love watching our students leave the technology lab proudly wearing these stickers
