In recognition of the Hour of Code global event, Lewis and Clark K-5 students were introduced to coding using a program called Kodables. We began on November 31st and continued through December 6th. Logins were sent home with students just in case anyone wanting to continue the program could do so at home. The feedback from teachers and students was that the majority of students enjoyed it very much and left them asking for more. As I came upon other events, I began sharing a new coding project with teachers expressing an interest. Today I took my first group of fifth graders and introduced Google Logo and Scratch. They loved it!
When their projects are complete, Ms. Taylor and I will share their logos for all to see and have the class determine each theme.
