What if?
A New Coding Game Allowing For Group Play from Code Spark Academy
Snoopy Snow Brawl
Pre-reader - Grade 5 - Block coding - For beginning to intermediate coders
Team up with friends and practice your coding skills by programming Snoopy's Beagle Scouts in a fun and silly snowball fight! Beginners and pre-readers welcome - teams write their code in secret while trying to outsmart each other. With words-free code, everyone can get in on the fun! This activity supports 1- 4 players on the same device - play against friends or the computer.
iPads will need the codeSpark Academy app.
Teachers will need to create a classroom, then set up the devices when using the CodeSpark Academy apps. When I went in as a student, I had to go out and come back in again for the Snoopy Snow Brawl to show up as an option.
Chromebook users can choose the “Play on your Web Browser” version.
On the web version, there is no need to pay. Simply choose “Hour of Code” from the menu at the top of the screen.

3 Fun Strategies for Note Taking
“Note taking can be active, collaborative, and tailored to each student’s pace—and you can skip the lecture.” Check out the process and strategies of these 3 ways that get the class actively involved, from Andrea Marshbank via +EDUTOPia, thank you +Tony Vincent  image: https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8234/8576618657_219e8c91d0_b.jpg
  1. Walking Notes - “...try printing out your presentation and posting it all around your classroom or an available hallway.”
  2. Students Teaching Students - ”Provide students with a list of questions that would previously have been answered by a lecture you would have given. Have them pick a question they’re interested in and, either individually or in pairs, research it.”
  3. Fact Checking - “give your students a copy of notes similar to ones they would take during a lecture. Then inform them that several facts within the notes are incorrect.”

In Addition…
Beware of this fake Netflix phishing email scam! It looks incredibly real.
The goal, as with most phishing emails: To get you to provide your personal info, password, and ideally your credit card numbers to “reinstate” your account.” Read more here from +Cool Mom Picks

Just click to add their wished-for items, which range from shoes to educational magazines to toys and games, to your cart. The toy is delivered to the sponsoring charity (which is identified on the child’s profile, too). That group will get it to the child. Thank you @CoolMomTech
