My boys are super into computers and how they work. Kids coding has become a huge interest these last few years. But the resources aren’t as easy to find as other techie interests. I am excited to tell you about a kids coding computer program that just might help curb that excitement and funnel it into something really exciting.

KidCoder Game Programming is a computer program for you techie loving kiddos. I want to tell you all about it.

What is KidCoder?

Designed for kids from 6th to 8th grade, KidCoder is a two-semester program. 

The first semester covers the language of programming. The second semester covers creating an actual game/program. They create shapes, learn how to create animation, and sound effects.

Each lesson comes with a video which is great for our visual learners. Each lesson ends with a simple quiz the kids also take in the program. If your child stresses about tests or quizzes, you could read the questions aloud and have them tell you the answers.

The best part about KidCoder? It provides the breakdown of big concepts so that your kids can keep on creating long after they have completed the course! 

Why moms love this kid coding program.

I’m not a big gamer person. I would much rather my kids were outside or building something than sitting in front of screens. But I’ve also learned that to nourish my kids’ learning means to nourish their interests. And for one of my kids in particular, their interest is computers and gaming–how they work, what makes a game, etc.

I am loving KidCoder because:

  • I don’t understand this stuff and I don’t have to teach it! This program does it all! It’s a self-study curriculum that does it all for you.
  • This program is complete. I don’t need to download anything else. No textbooks. Nada.
  • KidCoder is a full year’s curriculum, but I could make it stretch longer if I wanted to. It’s adaptable to your needs.

How about you? Do you have any great coding resources in your repertoire?

  1. Hi there, I’m Ann Brady with Homeschool Cheer.

    I’ve been working on getting more active on pinterest. I’ve been using Tailwinds, and I recently found their Tribes. It’s basically a Pinterest group that lives within the Tailwinds application. It’s super cool and EASY!

    You gather your Pinterest buddies right within the Tailwinds app and find beautiful, easy to share content from people you trust.

    I created a tribe called Joyful Homeschool which is welcome to all homeschoolers, but only posts with no faith/politics are welcome. I’d love you to join the tribe. It’s going to be a great time and I think you’ll love the Tailwind Tribes app.

    A few details. If you join, we both get a $15 credit. : D Tailwinds does cost, but Tailwind Tribes is FREE, so you never need to buy anything to utilize the tribe. Here’s a link to how Tailwind Tribes works as a free service. http://help.tailwindapp.com/article/212-free-schedule-tribes

    Really though, I’m just excited to have an easy way to schedule my pins, find a pinning community and it’s all in one easy spot. Loving it!
    Here’s a link if you’d like to join the tribe. I’d love to have you!


    Best wishes,
