Jr Coding – Intro to Coding

This course is to introduce your preschoolers to the basics of computational thinking and coding principles through gaming. This course is recommended for 4-6 year-olds. Includes 10 lessons which include a total of 30 levels. These levels will introduce students to fundamental concepts and terms from the world of computers and programming. Each lesson is set to be 30 – 45 minutes long and is made up of 3 parts: an Introduction, Playtime and Debriefing. Not all of the lessons are based upon playing the game itself as some are more theoretical and teach new concepts. All of the lessons are playful and designed for younger students. Note, all lessons require a computer or tablet and active Internet. In this course, students will learn the basics of programming including:

  • Intro to Computers & Coding
  • Logic & Algorithms
  • Sequencing & Direction/orientation
  • Counting

Over the course of 4 weeks, they’ll join other students in a virtual classroom as they learn to think algorithmically and develop good programming habits. It is a pre-coding game ideal for 4-6 year olds.
