Coding Basics and Bomberbot in First Grade

bomberbot_1en

Since January the English Class first graders have been learning the basics of coding without using technology. Their teacher, Ms. Kati, has been using Linda Liukas’ Hello Ruby book and her Hello Ruby site as a reference to engage in wonderful games and play that teach children the basics premises of programming. Finally this week the first graders started using the coding programme that the English Classes are piloting this spring. You could have heard a pin drop in the class as the pupils started working with Bomberbot. Ms. Kati noted that several children continued coding practice with Bomberbot at home for the fun of it!
