Reading and Scratch

I am sharing an article here that I found interesting – it recommends giving kids a book for learning.  Reading is definitely in the curriculum!  This would also be a super easy starting point if you are new to coding.  The author recommends this for students in grade 5 or above.

“There is no need for comprehension quizzes, tests, or vocabulary practice since what the students read and understand should be evident in their programming. Kids read a book. Kids create. Kids learn to program.” – Gary Stager.
