It introduces nearly all of the Scratch Jr programming blocks, interface and paint editor in a fun and "hands-on" way as well as key CS concepts; parameters, sequencing, algorithms, parallel programming.

As the “Paperless Educator” I have conducted coding workshops since 2014. This Scratch Jr Fussy Frog Coding project has been thoroughly tested in a

live workshop situation with children 7 -11 yrs, so you can be assured that they will

gain real benefit from it and have fun.
