Build a strong computer science foundation screen-free with Beginning Coding, 1st Grade. Colorful and fun hands-on activities help children make real-world connections to coding.
Beginning Coding connects coding concepts to life with games and puzzles that introduce basic coding rules. Based on the K–12 Computer Science Framework, Beginning Coding is organized into themed units of algorithms, decomposition, sequencing, pattern, debugging, loops, and conditionals. If these are not familiar terms to you now, they will be when your child finishes this course.
The computer science concepts and skills taught through Beginning Coding will help your students become critical thinkers by learning how to break down complex problems into smaller ones. They will also connect similar issues and realize that the order in which things happen is essential.
Help your early learner become a critical thinker with the computer science concepts and skills taught through Beginning Coding.

review by The Coulter Coop
”Today I’ll be doing a first impressions and detailed flip-through of Evan Moor’s Smart Start Beginning Coding Grade 1. This is a wonderful early-learning book out of our Timberdoodle 1st grade curriculum kit, and I wanted to share!”
”I would recommend this if you want to start teaching about coding. The book says it is for 1st grade but I would honestly say this could have been used when our daughter was 4-5 doing kindergarten. So, if you have a bit of an advanced kindergartener then they should be able to complete this curriculum easily.”
