Al-Hadi offers an introduction to coding class for all its early students to start learning the fundamentals of coding. The class usually consists of 3 parts:
- Brief lesson on computers & programming concepts
2. A group hands-on activity to help understand a programming concept more in-depth (non-screen)
- Computer programming based on the Lego WeDo programming language & curriculum
The WeDo coding kit comes with a curriculum that spans grades k-5, with different levels of intensity for the grades. In addition, the WeDo kit is uses for the FIRST Lego League Jr competition, which Al-Hadi also offers and hosts.
We also take field trips. During the 2019-2020 school year, we visited the Apple store for a lesson & hands-on experience using Sphiro, one of the coding toys that they sell.
In addition to our standard coding class, Al-Hadi also offers a variation for Al-Hadi at Home. More details on Coding at Home are here.
