Book of the Month
by Josh Funk Year Published: 2018
All summer, Pearl has been trying to build the perfect sandcastle, but out-of-control Frisbees and mischievous puppies keep getting in the way! Pearl and her robot friend Pascal have one last chance, and this time, they’re going to use code to get the job done. Using fundamental computer coding concepts like sequences and loops, Pearl and Pascal are able to break down their sandcastle problem into small, manageable steps. If they can create working code, this could turn out to be the best beach day ever!
With renowned computer science nonprofit Girls Who Code, Josh Funk and Sara Palacios use humor, relatable situations, and bright artwork to introduce kids to the fun of coding.
This week is the hour of code and Lawrence is participating. Students were shown this video and have the opportunity to code in class as well as at home. This site does not require a sign in or a password. Students can also login to their Clever portal and access Hour of Code options on the right hand side.
