As my students and I continue on our journey exploring coding in our classroom I wanted to find an app that would help my students build a foundation on how to code in a simple and creative way. I took a look at several apps and chose the Scratch Jr. App for several reasons:
- It is free.
- The app is a content creation app where students are able to create and express themselves, try new things, take risks and experiment.
- Students that cannot read, can still use this app successfully.
- There are some fabulous resources for teachers.
