How I Use It
My students love the Foos! This is a great way to introduce and then differentiate each students pace to learn how to code. Each lesson and level is developed to teach and build upon the skills they have learned in the previous lessons. The characters are fun and vibrant. Students love playing and learning!
My Take
I love this App! Students learn the fundamentals of coding while I get to see them persevere. They learn the art of growth mindset, I see them sharing and teaching each other to get to the next level. I see them want to do better when they struggle and will try their absolute best to get there.
