Class 4: Python Turtle Programming
Python coding for kidsWe build the foundations of primary years by introducing logical and critical thinking. This enables a child to think out of the box. Algorithmic thinking through GUIs is introduced thereafter which covers broad subjects like sorting, debugging etc which induct the student to become a problem solver.Algorithmic thinking through GUIs is introduced thereafter which covers broad subjects like sorting, decomposition, etc which induct the student to become a problem solver.
Algorithm Labs are conducted for the practical aspect which develops problem solving and communication skills.
Various Coding tools are introduced to build a Computational Thinking mindset. Coding Labs are conducted to handhold the child so that he/she can code and create projects like animations, stories, games.
Python and HTML Coding concepts are introduced through GUI Tools so that children enjoy coding as they create projects.
Students will be able to code in Python and will be able to create their own web pages. They will understand coding concepts like variables, loops, and conditionals. Students use 3D models to start creating rich games.
Students are encouraged to work in small teams to imbibe a team working culture and to learn to play on his/her strengths.
Each student has his/her coding profile to which the list of projects which are stored in the cloud are added.
Assessment is through worksheet submission, project submission , tests and a monthly report card is sent to the parent on the child’s progress.
