How I Use It
I have first grade students animate their sprites, create spelling word animations, vocabulary animations, the possibilities are endless.
My Take
Students as young as 1st grade are successfully coding while they think they are just playing with blocks. It is amazing to watch them learn and figure out what they need to do to make their sprite do what they want it to do.
