5th and 6th Classers: Learn How To ‘Code’ — Create Websites…

It’s not too hard (it’s a little hard, like everything at first), and it’s a lot of fun.
It’s even easier and also a lot more fun when you learn WITH another person — maybe invite a friend to your house and learn together).

  1. First of all, watch this cool video;it encourages us all to give it a go, give it just one hour!And here Will I Am tells us that “Great coders are today’s rock stars, that’s it!”
  2. To begin, try the ‘Hour of Code’ games (you pick which)…
    we recommend the ones which say ‘Beginner’, obviously!!
  3. Then you’re ready for the ‘Hour of Code’ on code.org — where we play with Minecraft and Star Wars characters! 🙂
  4. And when you get really good, then you’re ready to go on to harder coding.
    Choose Course Two on the Learning section of code.org. Have fun!
  5. Of course, for the one or two of you who get really really good (maybe more of you???) then we recommend doing Course Three and Course Four and then the Code Academy page which is meant for grown ups to learn, but maybe you can give it a go?
