Hmm, I thought you had doing something like the This We Believe discussion for years, though?

Yes, but this year, the conversation took an interesting turn and was much more about developing others and supporting the group. It reminds me that I wanted to write about that work too...so much to do. Here are the statements the kids created this year:

We Believe…Everyone should contribute to our work.
There’s a time and a place for everything.
In working together and including everyone.
In saying “Yes”.
In listening to each other.
In being a role model to younger kids.
In encouraging each other.
In respecting everyone’s needs and ideas, even when they’re different from our own (unless it’s dangerous)
In doing our best work even when it’s hard.
In striving for the habits of mind.
In looking for ways to bring people up.
In thinking first.
In having fun.

Computer Science and Coding

  • Scratch
  • Squeek
    This is a fun language and makes good games. You need to download it to your computer so you need to check with your parents.
  • Python Tutorial
    You need to read this tutorial -- but you'll create a program that can talk to you (or at least seem to.)
  • Logo Simulator
    This is the Logo we use in math.
  • Kahn Academy Java Script Tutorial
    This is a syntax based language so it's more a little trickier that Scratch. But this is a great way to learn it with a video that you can pause and fiddle with.
