Fischreek Third Graders Program with Hopscotch

Today in the AT&T Classroom, our Fishcreek third graders worked with the Hopscotch app to learn basic skills for coding and programming.  By playing with the app, the children were introduced to some of the basic terms and processes for writing a simple program to control the characters on the app and create movement and simple actions.
In addition to learning the basics of programming, providing opportunities for children to learn coding skills also fosters children’s abilities for mathematical reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving.
