We have promoted Scratch, the brilliant free software that gives children a fantastic introduction to computer programming, before on these pages. Scratch for Young Learners (a resource for teaching Scratch to 5 – 8 year olds) is a recently introduced and very useful teaching resource that will help to teach younger children how to use the software.
The publication comes in the form of a series of activities and pointers for teaching Scratch to young students. The students will be provided with enough tools to create their own stories. Stories are a great way to introduce all the features of Scratch, and they allow for lots of creativity from the children. Scratch is a creative tool for any age, and even children this young can learn to use it to express themselves. Why not download the publication from the link below and give it a try?
