Computer Coding and Programming



Our first grade students have already started learning how to Code using the iPad App, Scratch Jr. If you have an iPad or iPhone at home, upload the app and have students teach you how to use this great critical thinking program.  Scratch Jr. is appropriate for K-2.  Another program that is similar but a bit more challenging is Scratch. This is a web based program and can be found at www.scratch.mit.edu  Scratch is appropriate for K-1 who have coding experience and 2-5 for rookie programmers.  We'll continue to expose students to different coding and programming opportunities throughout the year.
