Coding with Scratch Jr.

Scratch Jr is a free app available for Chromebooks, tablets, iPads and now Windows computers. Look for this icon in your app store:

Kids can use Scratch Jr to create fun stories with their own ideas and artwork combined with simple code for fun action. They can start simple, but grow with their techniques. Easy to learn, fun to use, lots to learn!

Six Bricks

In order to keep our minds sharp and our day fun, we took “brain breaks” with Six Bricks. These brain breaks do the opposite of disengaging the mind – instead, they “wake up” the brain, allowing us to transition from one activity to another fully focused and ready to learn. Look for a robust webpage on this topic in the future!
