Computer Science Education Week - Day 5


Good morning students!  It is Friday and day 5 of computer science week.  We hope you have had a chance to try out some of the activities we shared this week.  If not, don’t worry!  The links will stay active so try them when you can.  Here is the last one of the week and we had to save this one for last otherwise you might not have stopped playing!  We know that a lot of you like Minecraft.  Code.org has come out with a couple new minecraft adventures.  Try them out!  These lessons are a little tricky so ask a sibling or parent to play, choose an adventure and have fun!  https://code.org/minecraft  
Computer Science Education Week - Day 4



Good morning students!  It is day 4 of computer science week!  Today we bring you Monster Town!  How fitting is this game for current times!  Monster Town has a virus, but you can help the spread of the virus by learning to code and by making predictions!  Sound fun?  Go to https://studio.code.org/s/outbreak/stage/1/puzzle/1 to try it out!  

Here is a hint...you can select the words “world,” “sprites,” and “actions.”  

Computer Science Education Week - Day 3


Good morning students!  Have you ever used an app?  Maybe you have used an app on a phone to find directions or maybe you have used an app to send a message.  Have you ever thought about creating your own app?  Go to the link below to learn the beginning steps for the process of how apps are created!

Computer Science Education Week - Day 2






Hello students!  It’s day 2 of computer science week!  Have you heard of AI (artificial intelligence)?  When we use a computer, we can do things much more efficiently because of what the computer has been programmed (or taught) to do.  Would you like to do some programming?  It’s easy and fun! Go to the site below to program a computer to recognize fish from trash in the ocean and more!

Tips For Bedtime Anxiety


 
 
1. Ask your child if everything is OK or have a conversation:
Try saying, tell me what is wrong, how can I help you fall asleep
2. Create a bedtime routine to follow each night
3. Read books, stories, or get creative and make up silly stories. 
4. Say goodnight -hugs, high fives, tuck child in, kiss on cheek, etc.  Make it your own
5. Stop liquids and snacks at a certain time. 
Certain drinks and foods can create anxiety or can keep your child up late at night. 
6. Get a night light in the bedroom or put a small light on each night
7. Leave the door cracked open
