Exploring Patterning and Movement on a Grid Through Coding

Find out how you can help primary students to learn about patterning and positional language by moving through a grid in a beginners’ coding app geared towards our youngest learners, ScratchJr.  Coding can help support development of spatial reasoning skills, which is important for children’s future success in school. ScratchJr is a sandbox-style (an exploration-based environment) coding app for iPads, android tablets and chromebooks and is perfect for young children. Unplugged (without computer) coding ideas will also be presented.
