Coding Books I

This is the first post in a series about useful computer coding books that are age-appropriate for middle schoolers, as well as students with disabilities.

DK Publishers Beginners Ste-by-step Coding Course

This book helped me teach students computer science. I found it at the New York Public Library,  browsing through the shelves in the YA section.

What I like is that it covered Scratch, which is what I did with some of the classes. Although there was not enough time/cognitive ability (on my part, anyway) to do python, javascript or html/css, nevertheless it was there for the learning (I actually do know html, and a small amount of css).

Add excellent graphics and simple explanations, and what more could a teacher want to use to teach students?

Dorling Kindersley (DK) graphics are the BEST!

No Gym, but a Condo Library

This library is located down from the main lobby. Finally a building that has its priorities straight.

Library, part I

I visited a school with a library (which is the exception, not the rule…the library, that is, not my visitation. I peruse school libraries if I see them). In the bookcase closest to the door was this collection of Chicken Soup for the… books. Maybe there was a sale by the publisher?

Arty Books

I met an art teacher who showed me some beautiful handmade books she had created. I especailly like the accordian one.
