I am a month and a half into the school year. Coding has become such a fun part of my teaching. I truly believe in the importance of teaching coding. It also doesn't hurt that my kids love it. At this point in the year, we are wrapping up our "unplugged" coding activities. I still want to integrate a coding "dance" chart again and use it regularly, but I can do that as the year develops. To give a little insight into where we are at, please enjoy the video's below. We have done some fun and engaging coding activities this past month! Enjoy!
