Reflection: Advanced Students Hour of Code - Section 3: Elsa and Anna Snowflakes


One of my students was very good at coding. He had never tried computer science and coding before, it came very naturally to him. As he took on harder snowflake puzzles the other students were amazed. They began to ask for help from him. At first, I thought it would be best for him to stay on track. He was helping a student and I noticed that while helping he could see immediately where the student had written their code wrong. He was able to quickly offer help, explain it, and move on. This impressed me greatly and I thought I should share this with the principal and his parents. With him being so helpful, I thought it was fair to let him have more time coding and offered it to him so that he could practice this more if he liked it so much. This was an option for other students that enjoyed it as well. The hour of code lessons really showed me the importance of exposing our students to this science as our technology grows so fast in this area.
