There’s a Coding Club at my school and I’m the lucky teacher in charge. Every Tuesday morning I need to be at school by 7:50. The club doesn’t start until 8, but there are always a few kids waiting in the office when I arrive. We walk to the Learning Commons and get out the laptops. On most coding days I have about 17 students from grades 3-5. They get right to work. and I rarely have any behavior problems. There are many things that the students can do, depending on their level of expertise. One of my students has been doing some advanced courses on code.org and is now designing a game. I don’t know a lot about coding, but I really don’t have to in order to run the club. If a student asks me how to do something and I don’t know, I put the question out to the entire group. So far, there’s always been at least one student who knows the answer and can help. I think these students are learning a lot more than just coding. They are learning to work together to solve problems, to use trial and error as a strategy, and how to think logically. The best part for me is that I see them having fun and laughing.
