Learning the Codes

Being a student in our special learning community is all about learning the codes:

The letter and number codes or "literacy" are a foundation for future learning and life. We focus on the alphabet, phonics foundations and math practices. 

I am excited to introduce programming to TK students as a participant in the LUSD #icancode initiative . Learning how to code is the new literacy and helps children have an advantage in academics and prepare for college and career. 

TK provides students with extra time to develop social-emotional and the foundational physical motor skills. These behavior "codes" help each learner grow with developmentally appropriate practice.
