This back to school themed interactive storytelling and coding unit is sure to be a hit in your classroom! Teaching students storytelling and coding is a critical component to any 21st-century classroom. However, if you are a classroom teacher, you may feel you don't have the time to add one more thing to your already busy schedule. By integrating coding into your literacy curriculum, you have the ability to hit several standards all at once. This unit shows you step-by-step how to teach coding skills using the app Scratch Jr. or the Scratch website and how to integrate it into your reading and writing curriculum.
Who is This Product For?
Teachers who need engaging coding activities to excite their students while still teaching literacy and math standards. You will use the book Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School and the app Scratch Jr. or the website Scratch.
PLEASE NOTE: I wrote this unit with Kindergarten through 2nd graders in mind but the ideas provided can definitely be taught to older students, especially if they have limited knowledge of coding or use the Scratch website.
