|Teaching our 2nd grade buddies!|
My class participated in something called Hour of Code, sponsored by Computer Science Education Week. What started out as something just my class was doing, happily spread to the other fourth grades. And, even more exciting, once my class completed their "training hour" we collaborated with our second grade buddies so THEY also experienced hour of code. Second graders!
|Teamwork and patience were needed.|
Anyway, I highly encourage you to take an hour out of your week, sit down with your class (we started whole class before moving to individual laptops) and play around with coding. This is one of those skills that I don't think we realize how much it will be used in the future!
