Hour of Code Fun

My firsties had so much fun participating in the Hour of Code.  I used {this video}
 by one of the creators of minecraft as an introduction.  My kids were pretty impressed that I knew what Minecraft was.  Ha ha.  I also showed them my blog and we typed something together.  I then showed them the blog page translated into html code.  You could do that with any webpage by right clicking and choosing view source.  My kiddos were riveted and they were super excited to try coding.  I used the app, "Daisy the Dinosaur" as our first hands on experience.  We are lucky enough to have Apple TV so we could project  he app onto the Smartboard.  The kids were completely hooked at this point so I turned them loose and they LOVED it.  I'm sure coding will be part of our classroom throughout the year.
