Library and Coding Lab
Ruby Bridges Elementary School's Library Mission Statement
Welcome to our Library!
This year in our coding lab Kinder-3rd students will learn coding through Kodable, Scratch, and Hour of Code games. Our 4th and 5th graders will learn the coding language Python through the game-based coding program Ozaria. Grades Kinder-5th also learn how to navigate Google Classroom, and 1st-5th learn about various Google software programs including Chrome, Docs, Slides, Draw, Sheets, Forms, and Drive which translate to a working knowledge of most web browsing, word processing, presentation, diagramming, spreadsheet, and file hosting software. We use the Common Sense Media curriculum to focus on Digital Citizenship.
