I am the librarian at a primary school and my students range in age from 4 years old to 7 years old. My students love reading and watching Bookflix books. They learn lots of computer and coding skills using laptops and iPads.
The excitement they show me when the walk in and the iPads or laptops are out is such a thrill for me.
I love working with children and hope the things I do will encourage them to learn and read.
I see 451 students each week. My campus is a primary campus with these three grades, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and first grade.
Building coding skills can begin at any age.
Beginning coding can be taught to all age groups, especially Pre-Kinder through first grade.
The Scratch games I chose are cards for them to learn the basics of following and discussing directions. Through these activities, basic skills (that some students already know) will become tangible.
The Code-a-pillars and Code & Go robot Mouse kits will allow them to transfer the knowledge they have learned with the cards and directional games to programming a robot.
