Hour of Code

This week, all 3rd grade students participated in the nationwide "Hour of Code." Computer science is an emerging career field with too many positions open and not enough people to fill them! Computer coding helps students understand the language that makes computers works as well as requires them to problem solve and think outside of the box! Ask your students to show you on their iPads what they've been doing this week with Hour of Code!

Enjoy! :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Thank you to Shawna Voss for donating a Christmas tree to our class and to Hyatt Hodges for donating the beautiful decorations. The kids love the bird! They want to pet it.
