Coding For Beginners Scratch Jr Bundle
This Coding For Beginners Scratch Jr Bundle introduces nearly all of the Scratch Jr programming blocks, interface and paint editor in a fun and “hands-on” way as well as key CS concepts; parameters, sequencing, algorithms, parallel programming.
This Coding For Beginners Scratch Jr Bundle has been thoroughly tested in a live workshop situation with children 7 -11 yrs, so you can be assured that they will gain real benefit from it and have fun! As the “Paperless Educator” I have conducted coding workshops since 2014. It combines my two best selling resources in a great value bundle deal!
Included in the bundle are:
Coding – Fussy Frog – A Scratch Jr Project For Beginners
Coding – 5 Debugging Challenges for Scratch Jr
Let’s look at each one…
Activity 1: Fussy Frog – A Scratch Jr Project For Beginners
I designed this project for beginner programmers 7-10 years.
It introduces nearly all of the Scratch Jr programming blocks, interface and paint editor in a fun and “hands-on” way as well as key CS concepts; parameters, sequencing, algorithms, parallel programming.
What You Will Need To Complete The Bundle Activities:
To use this resource you will need to install the free Scratch Jr coding app on your
• IOS iPad/Phone device
• Amazon Device or
• Android Tablet device.
What is included?
The resource contains QR codes and/or direct clickable links to 6 step by step child-safe videos hosted on Safe Search TV.
What is Safe Share TV?
My video tutorials are hosted on Safe Search TV because it does not allow any sidebars, clickable links or any other inappropriate content to show to the student.
The Fussy Frog video tutorials cover the following skills and should be completed in order:
• Video 1
An introduction to the project and a sneak peek at the finished result!
• Video 2
Introduces the Scratch Jr Paint Editor and guides you as you create Fussy Frog’s
habitat, using vector shape tools.
• Video 3
We Introduce the main character Fussy Frog and start to make him move, jumping
from lilypad to lilypad! The
background was hand-drawn in the previous video so the programming to make Fussy
Frog Land accurately will be
unique. By trial and error and debugging your code the best parameters will be chosen
to achieve your objective.
• Video 4
We introduce speech and refine the motion of the main character.
• Video 5
Time to introduce some more characters! We explore triggering blooks, look blocks,
loops,and repeats and the go-home
• Video 6
Time to explore the text tool and titles. We name the project and learn how to save
and share your finished project with
How Long Will The Fussy Frog Project Take?
You should be able to complete this project in 3 to 4 – 40 minute Sessions, depending
on how many original ideas the student wishes to add to their project once they
understand the key programming skills introduced!
Once completed they will have the necessary skills and experience to create some very exciting projects of their own!
Activity 2: Coding – 5 Debugging Challenges for Scratch Jr:
Perfect Digital Technologies/STEM Activity for the classroom, code club or homeschool.
Why is debugging a valuable learning activity?
Debugging ?res up those computational thinking skills!
Students need to;
Identify the problem
Locate the error
Create an innovative solution.
To use this resource you will need to install the free Scratch Jr coding app on your IOS iPad/Phone device, Chromebook, Amazon Device or Android Tablet device.

Reviews for Coding For Beginners Scratch Jr Bundle
|This was a great introduction to scratch jr!
|This is great! Most everything I see is how to code but not how to fix it when it goes wrong. Debugging is an important part and I am looking forward to using this!
