First Grade Enjoying Computer Science Education Week

In Mrs. Lickliter’s class, the students learned how to use different coding programs through the Hour of Code off of the Elementary Startup Page. Throughout the day, the students rotated between each first grade class to experience a different type of coding. My class got to experience learning how to code games like Minecraft and Candy Quest. Also, they learned how to make a character dance and then had to copy the dance on Dance Hour. Last, they learned how to build a boat with their team to help a penguin stay afloat. From the interactions and the comments, I can say that the students enjoyed how to code on the computer. I heard one of the students say, “Creating a character, then dancing like it is so much fun!” Students enjoy using their computers to learn new information and to have some fun.
