Hour of Code

Today we participated in the hour of code which gave our students an introduction to Scratch which is another coding program that we will be working with in class.  We are planning on working on one or two more of the activities, however if your child is interested in coding and would like more time to explore they can go to to find all the activities.  We are sure they will have a blast!
