Kodable for K-2

Looking to have K-2 students code beyond December? We hope so!

If so, consider creating free student accounts for Kodable. Once you create your account and upload your roster (quick copy and paste...or use student numbers), students use the iPad app, type in the class code and select their name.

Students progress through levels that become increasingly more challenging the further along they get.
