Over the last several years, I have tried many different ways to teach coding to young kids. Until December, nothing really got the kids going. That's when Hour of Code became available. There were a few things I did before I got them started, including teaching binary numbers and coding without computers. But with those under our belts, we jumped right into 20 hours of coding. Every kid was able to finish their 20 hours and by the end of the semester, the students were easily making games in Scratch. It was a great success and the first time I felt like the kids were able to really be successful. I look forward to taking another class through the process and helping them go even further into creating apps for use on
