Computer Science Education 

Every year we participate in the Computer Science Education Week in December. Students all around the world are challenged to spend one hour learning the basics of computer programming. Our challenge this year will be to begin early and experience the joy and excitement of computer programming.  Begin with a review of Angry Birds and then challenge yourself with Anna and Elsa.

Last year as second graders, students had the opportunity to participate in the “Hour of Code”.   Watching this video will remind you of people in the world who talk about the importance of kids like us learning computer code.

On our classroom blog you will find several links under the heading, Computer Science. These links will lead you to computer programming. On our Stafford Website under the Library Heading, there are additional opportunities for computer programming. Encourage your parents and friends to participate in this challenge as well.

  1. Dear Mrs. Fordyce,
    My mom and I watched the video on computer code. We can’t find any links or a heading called Computer Science on the blog. Can you please help me tomorrow in class to locate the information?

    • Hi Griffin,
      The Computer Science heading is on the right side of the blog. Scroll down to the post about the 5 Amazing Designs for Bridges and it should be right there on the right side of our blog.

      Let me know if you find it,

  11. Dear Mrs. Fordcye and Ranchers,
    I started doing the Elsa and Anna coding, and my favorite part was when I got to a very hard part, and my mom had to come help me. I learned a lot about angles and degrees. I had so much fun doing coding. I am so excited when my brother dose coding so I can teach him how to do coding.

  12. Dear Mrs. Fordyce and Ranchers,
    I love hour of code so much! I had forgotten how to do it so I tried the Anna and Elsa one and it was so fun! I went all the way to level 6. The thing I enjoyed most was the challenge like it was a puzzle! The challenge that I faced was trying to get Anna to make a snowflake! I can’t wait to do it tomorrow!

  13. Dear Mrs. Fordyce and Ranchers,
    I just finished 7 levels of Hour of code. Hour of code is one of my favorite things to do. I did the Ana and Elsa to make a snowflake! I’ll see you next time bye.
