Hour of Code

Students in Mrs. Allen’s and Mrs. Wiggington’s 2nd Grade Classes joined 15 million students around the world as they learned an Hour of Code last week. They explored the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming using a game-like tutorial starting Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. They also briefly explored MakeyMakey.

There are some activities that I know students will enjoy, but then I still get blown away by their excitement. This activity was one of those things. The kids were beyond excited. I was amazed by their problem solving skills, how they helped one another, and some of the solutions they came up with. I’m pretty sure some went home and coded some more.  Here’s a brief video with pictures of the experience.

  1. I’m sure my grandson, William, was excited! Anything to do with the computer and learning is what he is all about! Thanks!
