I was working with a kindergartner during coding club and I asked her to find the block that ended with the word "up." Now in my defense, I thought it was a likely sight word and chances were pretty good she knew it. She was incredulous, "I can't read!" So here was my challenge, can you teach programming to students who do not yet read? Of course, I look beyond this challenge and see the next: Can you use programming to support and deliver literacy instruction?
