Our school is joining in on the Hour of Code, during the week of Dec. 7-13. This is a world-wide event to introduce students to computer programming. We participated last year, and it was a huge success!
During the Hour of Code, students will use critical thinking, logic, persistence, and creativity to solve problems, which are all related to AASL Standards for 21st Century Learners. If you have a computer, tablet, smartphone, or other device with an Internet connection, your child can use the site at home by visiting code.org. This is a very engaging educational activity, and I encourage you to check it out!
