Hour of Code Inspires Third Graders

Pleasant Valley Third Graders learned a little about computer coding in the first ever District-wide Hour of Code.  Students spent the afternoon after December’s early release learning basic computer science.  PVHS and PVJH students coached the third graders through lessons on code.org, either moving Moana’s boat to find fish or helping a Minecraft chicken roam.  The students learn a simple process of thinking – choose a direction on a computer screen and make an animation move on another.  The process gets more complex as students learn, in hopes of sparking a love of computer science in each child.

Thank you to Chris Cournoyer and Theresa Barber for organizing this first of what we hope is many Hours of Code for PV students.  And a big thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this afternoon a success!

Code.org is a free website.  Have your student try it out here –>  https://code.org/learn
