Coding and Algorithm Activity Cards Bundle

This bundle provides a great opportunity for students to have ⭐FUN whilst learning the ⭐FUNDAMENTALS of ☀️CODING and ☀️ALGORITHMS.

When students use these action cards in an 'UNPLUGGED' environment they are executing instructions SOCIALLY and COLLABORATIVELY using commands and concepts applicable to the real world and computer programming.

Your students will love coding and creating algorithms by programming each other to undertake real world tasks in the classroom. They will continually collaborate to refine their code making it as efficient and effective as possible. Students will frequently, fail, revise and succeed using these cards building resilience and learning through trial and error.

Most commonly students use these “action” cards to create instructions to follow as if they were a robot in pairs or teams. One as the coder and the other is the machine or device that must explicitly follow the instructions. Next, they can use these with real robotic and coding languages such as Sphero, Dash and Dot and Scratch to visualise and perform a set of actions before entering those instructions into the device.

This package includes 10 CHALLENGES for students to begin straight away but they will begin creating challenges and missions in no time using just the room and resources in which they are located.

Also include Boolean operator cards for students to explore how search engines operate.

Playing for the Team. A resource for EAL/D Middle Years students.

EAL/D Bundle for teachers of Middle Years students.

The resources in this bundle have been prepared for EAL/D students with personal backgrounds where limited literacy is common. These materials also are appropriate for EAL/D students from literate backgrounds and for mainstream students aged 11 - 14 in need of additional literacy support.

The focus of these resources is the story, ‘Playing for the Team’. This is an original story presented in three different versions. Version 1 is the simplest form of the story, whilst the ideas, language and vocabulary of Version 3 are more complex and sophisticated.

The key objective addressed in these resources is student competency in reading for meaning, and understanding how reading comprehension ‘works’ within three levels; literal, inferential, reflective (also known as evaluative). Supporting materials include a suggested teaching sequence for a series of lessons, explicit teaching strategies and notes for teachers. Resources for students include learning activities on vocabulary, story sequence, read & retell strategies and three levels of comprehension.
