I am so glad I was able to attend class today as the students were engrossed in their projects. See the information below of what we worked on in class:
Warm up and Discussion:
How would you design a maze for fuzzy the robot to get from one destination to another? Explain and draw it.
Learn how to sign up for CSFirst and Scratch with a special sign up code
Watch CS Videos teaching us how to make our name spin, flash, change colors, change background, etc. Apply those videos to our own name on Scratch.
Learning that block coding is a step by step process of algorithms, sequencing, and conditionals that are designed behind to blocks students are connecting together.

Animate A Name project
Students enjoyed being challenged with a harder coding concept with Scratch. They have been using Kodable.com and worked through the basic programming of getting the "Fuzzy" to a destination, now they can begin applying their skills to the block style programming in Scratch. This type of programming will help them program some of the Robots and/or help them understand why and how the Robots are controlled by humans.
We took a break from Scratch and became engaged in our new Robots that Ms. Love brought in. See photos on Class Dojo.
Lastly, we reflected on Google Classroom what we accomplished today.
