THE FOUNDATIONS OF CODE

BLOCK-BASED CODING

Block-based coding simplifies the process of computer programming. Rather than writing out the code, students can drag and drop coding blocks that represent code. Block-based coding uses interlocking, graphical blocks so students don’t need to write. The benefit of using block-based coding is that it helps younger students learn the basics of programming without having to worry about the messy syntax that often accompanies code.

EASY TO UNDERSTAND

With the progression of challenges, CodeMonkey Jr. eases pre-schoolers and kindergarteners into gaining an understanding of fundamental coding concepts early on. Best of all, they don’t need to know their ABC’s! Using blocks, students build a set of visual coding instructions that help lead the monkey to the treasure chest.

DESIGNED FOR CLASSROOM USE

With 4 courses and 120 challenges, CodeMonkey Jr. is a great addition for preschool and kindergarten classes. The game is available on any web-based browser or tablet. No coding experience necessary to teach or play! Teacher guide included.

TEACH PYTHON BY HELPING A BABY MONKEY ON ITS WAY HOME

GAME-BASED

In the game, twin baby monkeys were separated by an earthquake – leaving one of the monkeys with no way to get bananas! Now, it is up to your students to use code to rebuild the path and feed the baby monkey. Along the way, students will plan and program the game surroundings to code a path for the banana to get to the monkey. 

LEARN PYTHON

Help students learn fundamental and advanced Computer Science concepts in the programming language Python. Kids will develop and strengthen their skills in sequential programming, lists and indexing, for loops, variables, if else, while loops, Boolean operators, functions, classes and class objects, sorting, and various data structures.

EASY TO FOLLOW

The platform is intuitive and instructions are easy to follow. Every few challenges, new animals are introduced to help clear the path. After students write their code, they will click on the banana to get it moving along the path. Hints and tips are included every step of the way.
