Learn ABCs – Read

Feb 25, 2021

Our ABC's and 123's series continues!

Welcome back to our ABC’s and 123’s series!

We’ve created programs for each letter so that your students can save these projects to their My Projects folders, understand how the code works, and then watch Dash trace out the letters using Sketch Kit.

Below are printable PDF’s that include the program codes that students need to add to their Blockly Apps or their accounts in the web version of Blockly.

This week, help Dash spell the word READ!

We’re celebrating Read Across America Day, (March 2), by asking your students to help Dash learn to write the word READ! Wonder Workshop loves to mix coding and robotics with storytelling. Consider this classic Dash & Dot Story Time activity, which encourages kids to bring together props from around the house to create a robot adventure story.

 

And check out this roundup of all of the letters and numbers and a big list of ideas for extending the learning and creativity even further.
