I hung out with my girl Moana and tried out An Hour of Code.
Tried being the keyword in this post. I picked a coding game for grades 2-5 and apparently I am not smarter than a fifth grader because I only made it to level 16 and it definitely took me WAY longer than an hour.
Moana let me down easy when I just wasn’t getting it:
And she built me up when I CRUSHED IT:
When it first started I thought “this is easy peasy lemon squeezy”.
But as I was getting higher up in levels,
This coding thing ain’t no joke! This is such a good problem-solving activity for students. I love that it is a way to combine problem-solving with technology!
Although I gave up before receiving my certificate, I gave myself a certificate in my heart because I tried really hard!!
I will definitely use coding with my tiny humans in my future classroom.
SUPER DUPER COOL STUFF!
