Important update: This is an executable file, meaning that it runs as a computer game would on a laptop/desktop/Chromebook. You can put it on CD-ROM or jump drives to share it with your students, but you will need permission to run .exe files (Windows) or .app files (Mac). If you are unsure if you have these permissions, please check with your system administrator (usually the technology facilitator at your school).

Connect sight word learning, vocabulary development, oral comprehension, and social studies concepts with one coding game! This computer game requires almost zero preparation from teachers - simply load the file onto your students' computers and they will be ready to start programming. You do not need to be a programming expert to teach your students the coding concepts. You do not even need an internet connection to play!
Designed with young children in mind, Code the Bakery allows students to learn the basics of sequencing code while also developing their literacy and executive functioning skills.
Four sight words (get, put, in, on) are introduced with in-game voice-overs, while baking vocabulary is accompanied by picture cues. Students will learn to move blocks of code into a sequence by following oral directions, and will then be able to creatively decorate a cupcake.
Improve technology integration in your classroom with a game that is both fun and challenging for young students!
Necessary for play:
Student computers/laptops/Chromebooks (this is not compatible with tablets!)
