Coding for Kindergarteners
Coding is the process of learning how to use computer code to create or interpret digital information. Coding is important for students in kindergarten through third grade because it helps them learn how to read, write, and communicate using digital technologies.
In kindergarten, many children learn to code by using an app called Code Academy. This app allows children to create and interpret simple digital code. The Code Academy app is available for free on Apple and Android devices.
In addition to using the Code Academy app, some children learn to code through online resources. For example, online resources like Khan Academy offer short, interactive tutorials on various programming concepts.
Even though coding is important for kindergartners, there are many other digital skills that they need to develop. For example, some kindergartners learn to read and write using software like Apple’s Rosetta Stone.
