Almost all of the Kindergarten students have mastered how to logon to their computers using a logon id and password.  Everyone can pretty much navigate the websites I have introduced them to and can logoff correctly. 

We participated in the Hour of Code for Computer Science Education week.  We learned about sequence and why it is so important to know how to sequence code so that it runs correctly and gives us the result we expect.  We used a coding program called Kodable.  The next 10-12 weeks will be learning to code using code.org.

First grade learned how to code Ozobots using color code sequences.  What a fun time it was to see what our little Ozobot robots could do like zig zag moves or u-turns or twisters.  This was an introduction to coding and knowing how important it is to sequence codes correctly.

We participated in the Hour of Code for Computer Science Education week.   We used a coding program called Kodable.  The next 10-12 weeks will be learning to code using code.org and a computer language called Blockly.

Second Grade finished their MS Word lessons which introduced them to many of the text editing tools.  They got pretty good at changing the looks of text and typing paragraphs.  We also had a lesson on Plagiarism and why it is important to learn to paraphrase instead of copying someone else's ideas.

We participated in the Hour of Code for Computer Science Education week.   The students used a coding program called Dance Party in which they learned about sequence, events and properties.  The next 10-12 weeks will be learning to code using code.org and a computer language called Blockly.
