Scratch Projects for 10-11 year olds: Scratch Short and Easy with Ready-Steady-Code

Seamus O'Neill

 Seamus O’Neill’s Ready-Steady-Code fine-line vector grids have been included in Scratch by its makers at MIT (Boston). This set of assignment cards include many projects (e.g. card 3) that bring out the magic of the grids.The cards are also available spiral-bound as free-standing and flip-over for hands-free collaborative project-based computer activities by children. There are twenty four cards for children 10 - 11 years, grouped into pairs by colour to cover 12 Lessons. Each card is a short coding assignment in Scratch to foster Computational Thinking in maths and numeracy. Scratch+Ready-Steady-Code helps children learn essential coding concepts while giving them great scope for creative thinking.
The code (or script) in each assignment is short and designed to fit within a lesson time slot. Each script is compatible with a program of study for children between the ages of 10 and 11. Each card matches a learning objective within the general Math curriculum framework of Number, Logical Reasoning, Spatial Awareness, Shape, Measurement and Data.
SCRATCH +Ready-Steady-Code empowers the teacher to take up the challenge that comes with being an educator of children in this age of technology. The cards address teacher confidence and competence while facilitating children coding and doing their maths at the same time. OK!Are you Ready? Are you Steady? Let’s Code!

About the author

 About the Author – Seamus O’Neill


(Over 50 years in education): Seamus O’Neill has been an imaginative primary teacher during his long professional career. From before and since he left classroom teaching he has been in demand for curriculum-based CPD in Art, Maths and Scratch coding.

CoderDojo Pioneer: Seamus is a pioneer, volunteer and entrepeneur. He set up one of the first Irish CoderDojos, in Navan over 6 years ago. He believes code at school should be (and can be) just as much fun and exciting for girls and boys at school as it is in CoderDojo – a non-school activity which attracts far less girls than boys.

Maths & Coding Research: He co-authored the ‘Mathemagic’ and ‘Mata Draíochta‘ text books which has been the most popular primary maths text series in Ireland, used in almost 80% of primary schools. Most recently (2017) the developers of SCRATCH, the MIT Media Lab (Boston) contacted Seamus to add his Ready-Steady-Code component into the world’s top children’s programming language. Scratch has over 32 million users, and the Ready-Steady-Code vector grids have improved Scratch for children and teachers worldwide. Since then he published his book ‘SCRATCH with Ready-Steady-Code’ and children’s Flip-books and support resources (e.g. Magnetic Scratch, Staff-room Mugs in Irish and English) to simplify and add fun to learning Maths with Code at school for all teachers who teach Maths

Maths & Environment Resources: When Mathemagic was introduced, the Departments of Education and of the Environment (as well several County Councils) engaged him to run a project that supported both Maths teaching and Environmental good practice. This project was also supported by Kelloggs and TetraPak.
