Hour of Code

I finally got to do some coding with students today.  I've had first grade research going on all week taking up most of my time and they were on a field trip today so I invited some 4th and 5th grade classes to the library.  After a quick explanation and demonstration of the Angry Birds tutorial I let them loose on iPads and computers.  Some worked with partners and some worked alone.  I loved the excitement and the problem solving that I saw in these hours.  The partners would high five each other as they advanced and some really advanced far in the hour they had.  Some of the students even had a chance to work on the Lightbot app I had downloaded on the iPads because they finished the Angry Birds tutorial.

I am hoping to start a coding club in the spring and would love to know of any other apps or websites that you have used for coding.
