Educators & parents: You can do this Hour of Code Activity as a class or students can work on it independently. If you have any questions or need help, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Hour of Code activity is great for young pre-readers or early readers. First, they'll watch a read aloud of a simple story and then do a coding activity on a tablet. Our story integrates real code using ScratchJr, a coding language that gets kids coding at an early age (ages 3-6) using colorful coding blocks.
In the video below, you can watch a read aloud of the story.
Download the free ScratchJr app onto each of your classroom iPads or Android tablets here:
In the next video, we'll walk through step-by-step how to code the story into ScratchJr.
