Robots and Coding
In January our Placentinkers learned the fundamentals of computer coding in a center based Makerspace session. We read the books Baby Brains and RoboMom by Simon James and Go Otto Go by David Milgrim. To begin, we had fun "coding" Mrs. Carey by giving her step by step instructions on how to walk to the Library desk. In our first center activity, students coded friendly little robots to help teach sequencing, estimation and problem solving. At the second center students used Chromebooks to explore age appropriate coding websites and apps. Learning to code teaches valuable cognitive skills like critical thinking and problem solving.
Placentinkers love to code - Placentinkers are thinkers!
