Product Description
This beginner Coding Vocabulary Practice & Book Study Resource comes as a paper activity that is downloaded as a PDF as well as a paperless, digital activity in Google Slides™. You choose how you would like your students to work with beginning coding vocabulary terms and reading comprehension questions.

This resource was created to go along with Skye Donzelli's children's book (Level M) that can be purchased on Amazon:Selfie Sam's Coder Club Adventures in Scratch . This high interest story will motivate your struggling readers who love video games! It is a great start to introducing children to terms associated with coding, digital citizenship and computers. Be sure to check out THIS blog post I wrote about the book!

Use the book as a read aloud, novel study, literature circle focus, or in guided reading stations!

What is included?

★ Paper & Digital versions of the before reading activity: Students will sort the vocabulary terms according to their knowledge of the words (I can TEACH someone the meaning of these words, I have HEARD of these words before but not exactly sure what they mean and I have NO IDEA what these words mean.) This will allow you to gauge students' background knowledge when it comes to coding. It will also expose them to the vocabulary that will appear in the Selfie Sam story.

★ Paper & Digital versions of a word search created from the vocabulary used in the story

★ Paper & Digital versions of the during reading activity: Students answer one or two comprehension questions for each of the 9 chapters. Questions ask students to: compare/contrast (fill in a Venn Diagram), make predictions, use context clues, characterize the characters, and make conclusions.

★ Paper & Digital versions of the after reading activity: Students will match the vocabulary terms with their correct definition.

★ Answer keys for the vocabulary sort and comprehension questions (These can be found in the PDF)
