We had a wonderful day learning about the new term, “conditionals.” There are videos of the students engaged developing their own games using cards as most of you have viewed.
We started our day with the writing prompt: what was your favorite activity during Thanksgiving and another prompt of, “what do you think the word conditional means. Students were a little stumped on this word and they were asked to just make a guess and that we were going to talk about the new word.
We did a fun lesson after our prompt of IF we could be quiet for 20 seconds, then we could get 5 extra minutes of exploratory time. I watched the clock and they stared deeply at me and waited. We celebrated our 30 seconds and I discussed what we just did. This is a “conditional” using a conditional is a programming process of programming a robot, computer, games and/or apps to direct the process.
We worked on Kodable.com and ended our day journaling about conditionals on Google
Have a great week!
