Scratch Jr

 
ScratchJr is a free app that teaches K-2 grade block based coding. By creating algorithms, students can make characters move, jump, dance and sing. Students will learn how to problem solve, design projects and express themselves creatively. They will also use math and language in a meaningful and engaging way which supports the development of early childhood numeracy and literacy. Have your students come code to learn instead of learn to code.  Please have all students and participants download the Scratch Jr app to their device.
