Hour of Code

We’ve been busy!

This month we are taking part in the hour of code.  Today Marilyn Cole, who works at Digital Insight, a company that makes online banking software, came and spoke with Mr. Mize’s class about the importance of coding.

Want to code at home? Our younger grades are using a free app called the Foos. Our upper grades are using the resources at Hour of Code.  We’re learning to not just play games but to make them. Try them out!

Our 3rd-5th grade is gearing up for Bookapalooza, which will be held January 20.  Questions about a project?  Check out the CCSD Bookapalooza site.

We have been enjoying our new Osmos!  We’ve had fun with the drawing feature, tangrams, and words.  If you have an iPad at home, you might want to check Osmo out.  Feel free to stop by the media center and see what they do!

Lastly, don’t forget to read at home. Our next batch of reading logs will be due next Tuesday, December 15! If you have three turned in by that date, you are invited to our Reading Rock Star party.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
