Starting up, Rituals & Routines must be established; expectations for the classroom. CS is awesomely fun, but groundwork must be set. Not only do the students need to operate under a defined code, but there are guidelines that the educator must follow. Differention is a non-negotiable, therefore baselines need to be established. Once R&R and baselines are in place, and CS curriculum has been aligned to CCLS, CS teaching may begin. Vocabulary and concepts will be routinely reviewed so that students can speak to the subject. K-2, Differentiated groupings, of unplugged table groups of 4-6, may be the most manageable for classrooms upward of 24-30 students. Pair programming will be implemented once R&R are set. Lesson plans will be solid, with the understanding at any time one may have to pull-up and go around to achieve student success within this new realm in our school. There are many unknowns as this is our first year with CS K-5; in the past it's been just 6-8. We are lucky to have a class set of first-generation iPads which are precious and protected. Our K-8 team of three is determined and supported by Admin. Looking forward to this new journey!
