Coding for Kids-A Guide for Teachers and Parents
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.
