Kodable in the Second Grade Classroom

Thank you to the Second Grade teachers for inviting us to share Kodable with your students. Check out the second graders at BES who are learning to use Kodable in the classroom. Teachers can set-up classroom logins and monitor where students are in the process. You are able to see all of the Common Core Standards students will learn through coding as well. Kandy has created a coding certificate for the students who have completed the coding with her and will distribute to the students this Friday! Check out the resources for integrating coding in the classroom.

Support and Help

Remember to put in tickets to the Help Desk so that our department can understand all of the issues throughout the district. It allows us to monitor outages of internet, issues with Active Directory and items we may need to order like projector bulbs, projectors, or other items. Thank you so much for your help! Please check out the FAQ Section as we are adding helpful tips for troubleshooting in this location.
