Code can continue on your home computer
The students LOVED coding on code.org and they might like to do more over the winter break. Coding fosters critical thinking, perseverance, problem solving and confidence. All students in grades 3-5 have individual student accounts that enable them to log in, code, and save their progress. Parents of younger children can create accounts for their children. If students complete all the coding games/tutorials, they can win an iTunes gift card or download a free game. Students can log in at http://code.org
