Coding for Kids-A Guide for Teachers and Parents

via Udemy


Teacher guide for teaching elementary school children how to code a story they wrote.

What you'll learn:
  • Students/teachers will learn how to code a written story and apply this in their classrooms.
  • Students/teachers will feel comfortable with coding.
  • Implement coding during Writing in their classroom.

Coding Curriculum: Upper Elementary School

Project #1: Writing and Coding

Writing Code for a Written Story

These coding skills will allow students to bring their written stories to life.

For each session I recommend a 5 minute mini-lesson introducing the new skills (I Do) followed by students demonstrating the skills using a SMART board or projector while you are with them on the carpet for 3-5 minutes (We Do) and ending with 30 minutes of the children working in pairs or independently (You Do) while you circulate and assist. I recommend placing a check next to skills once a student has demonstrated mastery. This will help you assess which students need small-group instruction.
