Coding @ CE...
October through December CE students are working on their coding skills during our Coding Unit in Technology class. 3rd graders are creating their own animated story through Scratch, 2nd and 1st graders are practicing their coding skills with an app named Kodable and Kindergartners are commanding a dinosaur to move, jump and spin in a coding app called Daisy the Dinosaur. All CE students are learning key vocabulary words in basic computer programming such as bug, code, commands, conditions, debug, function, hacker, loops, pattern, sequence, sprite, and stage. We also discussed the first lady of coding, Grace Hopper. Take a few moments and ask your child to show off their coding skills with you at home. Happy coding!
