The best holiday of the year is around the corner… Hour of Code (Dec 7-13) !!!
Hour of Code is a week when millions of people code for an hour…and teachers let you play Hopscotch DURING class.
We made a ton of awesome videos for Hour of Code, and we’d love your help in spreading the word about them.
Please tell your teachers, your friends, or your family, so they can help other kids become coders like you. Yay! See below for an email we already wrote for you
We’re thankful for your help, and keep making cool things and being yourself.
Liza + Hopscotch Team
PS: Did you realize that because you play Hopscotch you have superpowers most adults don’t have? So if adults don’t want to lead Hour of Code, you could! Here’s a pic of kids teaching their teachers’ bosses how to code. BALLLLLLLLLLER.
EDIT THIS AND SEND TO TEACHERS, FRIENDS, OR FAMILY :
Are we doing Hour of Code in class this year?
We should! It's a week (Dec 7-13) where when millions of people try coding for an hour, and I think it would be really fun to do it in our class.
We could use Hopscotch, a coding app for iPad that I’ve been using recently. Hopscotch has free Hour of Code tutorials that students can do on their own, and there are also instructions if a teacher wants to lead the class. Even kids and teachers who have never coded before can use Hopscotch’s videos.

I hope we do it this year, and let me know if you have questions about Hopscotch!
