Lincoln Central Elementary School Library: Coding

All students will be introduced to computer programming in library classes using various websites and programs.  They will be using "block" coding which involves stacking blocks of commands to solve puzzles.  They will learn how to "debug" problems with their coding and also how to work as a team.

Hour of Code

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities below. (Hour of code website) offers free courses in computer coding for students starting in Kindergarten to University.  You can create an account to save your progress or just start coding without an account.
