Hour of Code is Coming to Lufkin!
Our mission: To educate and equip all students for success through exceptional learning experiences.
What is Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Hour of code is really about exposing kids to concepts of computer science so that they will have the opportunity to know that it can be a choice!
Hour of Code 2015 - WORLDWIDE
#LufkinCodes (for K-5 teachers) Presented by Code.org
Saturday, Dec. 5th, 8am-3pm

You must sign up here --- >> https://code.org/professional-development-workshops/5126015
This is a session designed for K-5 teachers new to coding in the classroom but all are certainly welcome! We only have about 10 slots left so sign up!
Each participant gets lunch, Code.org Swag and curriculum, including materials for "unplugged" lessons!
Choose a platform!
Think about your kids and what level of programming that they know. You don't have to use a computer at all. There are plenty of activities to do unplugged. Just DO something!
Code Minecraft. Make R2D2 travel between galaxies or ice skate with Elsa! You can do this without creating an account but it won't save your student's progress!
A Few of Our Favorites!
Code without Computers!
Whole Class Coding
Engage your whole class using your SMARTboard or Mimio. Kodable is one that is even great for pre-k kids! You will need to create an account first but it's pretty simple! If you are planning to code as a whole class, just place one sample student in the class and you're good to go! We can even download this one and push it out for you!
