October - December - Coding with Scratch

Last year as 4th graders, students used code.org which is a block based coding program where students worked together to solve puzzles.

This year we have moved onto Scratch which is a free block based program from MIT in Boston. Students are given open ended assignments there they can create projects using many more coding blocks. Their assignment this month is to create a program that animates their name.
