Scratch Across Every Subject: Literacy

A collection of resources and projects for Scratch and literacy.

Scratch Across Every Subject: Literacy

Coding is increasingly described as an "essential literacy" that should be included with reading, writing, and arithmetic. But Scratch can also be a great tool for deepening and extending reading and writing. Students can record phoneme sounds, design interactive book reports, create autobiographical music videos and so much more. 

We’ve started assembling Resources and Scratch Projects and we’d love your input! If you have lesson plans, activities, websites, videos, example projects, or something else to share—add them to the comments and we'll update this resource. Thanks!
