My experience on hour of code!
Aayan: Hour of code was really fun and we did so many things – I played a flappy bird game. Coding has been fun for my friends and we all did some other different games. The most popular game in our class I would say was Dance Party. It got popular by its updates and it added songs and some people like to just listen to the songs. (That’s what I also like to do). Hour of Code is fun, and it has been fun for my sister and me. First graders do bee bot. It’s basically coding but just in real life. Second graders play with bee bots too, code them to go in a line or turn left or right and finish at the end, also second graders learn some more games that are recommended for them and some second graders do hour of code on the third grades computer, third graders help teach first and second graders how to code a character.
