Coding Capers – Luci and the Missing Robot by Angela Cleveland and Tamara Zentic is the perfect book to use to introduce coding to your class. In this story, Luci’s computer class has been given the challenge to find the teachers missing robot, reprogram it, and bring it back to class. The winning team will each get their own robot. To find the missing robot, the kids have to use clues that focus on coding vocabulary and have to use perseverance to keep going.
I used this book as a way to introduce coding to my class. Coding is a great skill for students of all ages to work on and this book is the perfect introduction. It’s also a great book about growth mindset. The kids could have given up when they were unable to find the robot or reprogram it, but they persevered and kept going. My students also love this book because it had robots in it – and who doesn’t love robots?
