I designed a way of explaining code to the kids by using English, within normal code syntax. By creating a game using something they do everyday, like eating cereal. The idea was to get them used to thinking about gathering all things needed for a project first and to a little bit of pseudo code, thinking like a coder and finally they’d be reminded of it every time they ate cereal. Then as a final excercise, quickly make the game in scratch.
