McKinley-Thatcher is excited to be participating in the world-wide Hour of Code event as a part of Computer Science Education Week this week! Coding is computer programming — inputting a series of commands that tell a computer how to run. All our students, ECE to 5th grade, will learn how to code using the wonderful, kid-friendly resources at code.org.
Throughout this week, students, teachers, and families will have lots of opportunities to celebrate the joy of coding together!
Monday, Dec. 5 & Tuesday, Dec. 6 — students will learn about pair programming in technology class.
Thursday, Dec. 8— teachers will explore pair programming in our “Teachers Code, Too!” event.
Friday, Dec. 9— everyone is invited to our “Code with Your Kid” event, when families will join their children in the classroom for some partner coding.
Code with Your Kid! — Friday, Dec. 9
Join us in classrooms from 8:00am to 8:45am.
Explore lots of fun and challenging coding programs together!
