In this course, we will learn the basics of using Scratch Jr. Students do not need to have any coding experience but should know how to work their device. Since this is for younger students, I highly advise the student having their zoom meeting on a computer and their project on a tablet that they can work on while still seeing the lesson. This will also allow them to show their work to the class as we go!
Each class, the students will add to their animated story with new skills that they learn. Scratch Jr. is a visual block coding language that is perfect for prereaders. All of the blocks use images for their labels. Each of the four sessions is only 30 minutes long so that young students can stay engaged and focused the whole time.
Lesson 1: Introduction
-The students will be introduced to the Scratch Jr. App
-We will start a new project, learn how to add characters and backgrounds and make our characters move
Lesson 2: Creating/Editing Characters/Create Scenes
-Students will take this class time to add/create all the characters and create programs
Lesson 3: Animate our scenes
-Students will learn how to animate a scene
Lesson 4: Create Projects with more details
You will receive Zoom details in email.
How To Participate
You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.

The class was not held. Horrible and not professional to have a family change their holiday plans to wait for a class that was never held.
to have appropriate schedule. Notifify families with ample time that you are canceling the class. It is innapropriate to have children waiting for a notification. And not have the responsibility to contact us parents

Fast Math camp was a horrible experience for my daughter. I wish I read the review above to know the common tricks used by this vendor. 1. The math levels were not customized by level and when my daughter asked the instructor ignored her request. (1 child was 5th grade and my daughter was 4th grade.) 2. Instructor was rude to our kids. 2. The instructor gave math problems to work on after camp via the zoom chat. Rather than formally sending something out. When I contacted the company
(the director) via email , they never sent it the first day and then sent the 1st and 2nd day problems at 2 am in the morning. Only giving my child about 1 hour during the morning to complete it. 3. The instructor did not appear over video. My daughter also heard large groups of people in the background. (My daughter thought she was walking on the street. ) 4. When the other kid in the class complained about the sloppy writing of the instructor (asking to rewrite it), she replied “it’s fine”
Response from Young Gates
Hi Christine We just saw your review and are sorry for the experience. We had even talked to you about it over the phone regarding the instructor suddenly losing a family member and having people, help coming over and created a stressed situation for the instructor. We also completely refunded the whole amount. The other student continued and left 5 star reviews and is still doing the program.
