Coding

The Hour of Code is an organization that promotes computer coding in schools. They have a week in December where they want everyone to join in and try some coding activities but you can do it anytime. We started at the beginning of the year with coding apps on our iPads and we have also tried some of the coding activities on the code.org website. The crew loves it. They may also work on it at home. They just need to go to the Resources page of our crew blog, click on the Code button and log in. I think all of the crew knows how to log in now. I sent home their password cards home earlier in the year. If anyone has forgotten or lost their password just send me an email and I will send you their password. There are many activities there but the most popular were the Minecraft, Star Wars and Frozen activities.
