Ms. Philipson's 4th grade classes at Natalbany Middle School rock the hour of CODE. Students began using CODE at the start of the 3rd six weeks and really enjoy it. Here are some comments from our students: Jaron says CODE has taught him that it's not that easy to make a computer game, it actually takes a lot of work. Shaylia likes that there are different levels and you feel like you have accomplished something at the end of each one. Jack says sometimes he struggles, but he enjoys the challenge and knows it is helping him to learn how to process his thoughts. Roneitra calls it brain work, a fun way to learn. Sonia is just plain excited she is learning how to program a computer. Keno likes that he gets to work with images instead of a lot of words.
Sixth grade students of O.W. Dillon participating in Hour of Code using Code.org during their computer lab time with Ms. Richelle Votaw. The students in grades 3 - 6 started working on Code.org earlier this school year and have been enjoying it!
Fourth grade students in Mrs. Kirby and Mrs. Tullier's computer lab at DC Reeves began working on learning to code in school. The students first mapped out algorithms on paper before bringing the concept to the computer. Through the website www.code.org, students have the opportunity to learn basic coding skills that can be applied to future computer science concepts.
