Teacher Review for Kodable

I really appreciated being given a student page to explore. That way I knew exactly what their 'world' looked like and how it behaved. It made it easier to answer their questions and support them.

How I Use It
I started out using it for a Friday math lesson. However, the kids got so excited about it they took off and went on as often as the could. They would create at home and then tell each other they had made mazes for their friends to solve. My Resource student gained the most from this. This was math and reading she understood. She could create the codes and read the patterns. She would sneak her lap top to bed and practice under the sheets. (Until her mom figured out what she was doing and took the lap top) .
My Take
Kodable was so easy I could do it. I listened to your tutorials, practiced on my student sample page, and then assigned the lessons to my students. Through this process I was able to help guide the kids when they needed it.
