Now that I am working from home I find I have more time to spend with my kids and that means I can also show my kids more.
I have been looking for an option for learning code online and most sites have a pay subscription type model that is very entertainment based and not focused on a step by step approach at learning programming.
But after looking for some time I found this website called code.org and all I can say is wow, this is exactly what I was looking for.
Its like dropping PBS, Nintendo and a Coding book in a blender and getting a nutritious juice of knowledge.
Each lesson is paced slow enough to show your son/daughter why the concept is important instead of jumping directly in to flashy color screens. It was so intuitive that I even got my 3 year old to tryout programming concepts using pen and paper. Here is a example of the exercises they work on on paper.
If you have kids and your are interested in having them learn the concepts of programming you should tryout code.org how I wish these resources were available when I was young, now I want to make sure my kids take advantage.
Do you have any other recommendations on programming resources for kids?
