Kids and Coding - IT'S HAPPENING:)!!!

  Casey, our technology coordinator, has been meeting with kiddos and doing Hour of Code.  Students in grades 3-6 have been given the opportunity to go online and learn a little bit about coding.  THEY  ARE  LOVING  IT!!!  Check out WHY they are doing this.....

NOW, check out WHAT they are doing while in there.....
Their "task" is to move either an Angry Bird, or Elsa from Frozen, along certain pathways.  As they continue through and are successful, the coding becomes more difficult.  It is SO fun to watch the excitement in their faces as they actually MAKE the code correctly.  Not only that, it's neat to hear them talk about what "coding" means, and even a few have said they would LOVE to do this when they are older - LOVIN' THAT!!

Here are a few more pics from the lab today.......

Enjoy this and TOTALLY check it out - you will be AMAZED at how much the kiddos can do and how engaging this can be for them!

I am SO SO sorry about getting NOTHING up from TIES - I have been SO overwhelmed with stuff that haven't even had a CHANCE to look at notes - maybe today;)!!

Happy Monday,
Mrs. I:)
