Computer science(CS).................................

is a design methodology that teachesstudents to analyze and design solutions to problems. It doesn’tmatter if the desired goal is writing a persuasive essay or writing  amobile app—the skills from CS translate into creating the solution.In the elementary school I focus on the following CS skills that are needed inevery academic area:

•     

Designing solutions to problems      • Comparing andcontrasting

•     

Writing a sequence of steps             • Looking for patterns

•     

Solving puzzles                                  • Paying attention to detail

•     

Following directions                          • Developing spatialskills
"Computer science (CS) equipsstudents with unique skill sets similar to music and dance.The 
skills to model reality through numbers,methods, and functions give CS a unique placealongside 
music, dance, and drama as a way forhumans to express creativity.
How do we teach CS to younger students?We deliver concepts and content sequentiallythrough 
culturally relevant activities to createand play games, tell stories, and run simulations that equipstudents 
with the tools for digitalself-expression."

Programming robotic bees introducesstudents to source code and a sequence 
of steps.  Excellent practicefor counting, 
adding and subtracting using a numberline.  Information on this can be found at www.terrapinlogo.com.
