Daisy the Dinosaur: Early Years Coding

Category : Foundation

Over the last two weeks, the ‘Number Ninjas’ have been learning about position and movement. They have practiced following and giving directions and today they put all of their learning into action on the ‘Daisy the Dinosaur’ app. This app focuses on teaching coding in the early years. The Preps were able to control Daisy’s movements to complete missions or just have some fun. As you can tell from the smiles on their faces, they had a great time teaching each other how to manipulate Daisy’s movements. Below is a video Daisy following the Preps directions.

If you are interested in trying this at home, you can purchase the app here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/daisy-the-dinosaur/id490514278?mt=8

And another great app is called Scratch Junior: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/scratchjr/id895485086?mt=8
