Grades 2 and 7 "Buddies"

Seventh and Second Grade "buddies” met yesterday for an enjoyable session in which the younger boys played computer games designed and created this fall by the older boys during a new Upper School STEAM coding unit.

The second graders loved playing the computer games, and their older buddies enjoyed teaching them the rules.  Both grades have been learning coding through Scratch, an MIT visual programming language that is developmentally appropriate for each grade.

The boys had a wonderful time together, enjoying the exchange, the play, and the snacks!

On several occasions throughout the year, second and seventh grade buddies get together to share in a Saint David's experience, building community among the younger and older boys.

Next week, Seventh Grade boys will escort their Second Grade buddy to the school's Thanksgiving Mass.
