To celebrate 10 years of the coding program, Scratch, and to show off our coding skills to the rest of the school and our parents, we had a Scratch Fair today along with the other grade 3’s and the grade 1’s!
It was great to see everyone sharing their projects, learning new things, and helping others. Way to go, grade 3’s!
What did you do at the Scratch Fair?
What could we add to the Scratch Fair to make it better next time?
Students have been working hard to learn how to code their own ping pong game by pair programming. One student is the driver (i.e. the coder) and one student is the navigator (i.e. makes suggestions). Students will change roles throughout their coding time and work together.
We have also been having success with students taking on leadership roles and helping other groups in the class. Check out some of our games below:

Today we started to learn how to code using the Code Studio! You can find the link under our Learning Links tab at the top. This year our class received a grant from SET-BC for technology in our classroom to help us learn how to code. We were very excited to get started 🙂
