Teacher Review for Kodable - Coding for Kids

My kindergarten students love Kodable and it has been the perfect intro to coding this year! I love teaching the students to persevere as the levels get more and more complex.

How I Use It
We used Kodable by introducing it in a whole class lesson and then the students completed levels individually. This could also work as a partner activity so students could support each other on more difficult levels.
My Take
This is a great introduction to coding for young learners. The video lessons on the Kodable website are great tools for teaching the different functions and to relate the drag and drop picture coding to writing lines of code.
