# Winter Coding Worksheet: Frosty Sequences

Code the correct sequence to help Frosty the Snowman make his way through town before he melts away in this Winter coding worksheet for kids!

This free worksheet is great to print to use in a classroom or even at home! We like to practice verbalizing our sequences as well because it helps to practice coding concepts in different ways in order to master them!

## Why are Unplugged Coding Activities Important?

Unplugged coding activities are designed to build the foundation of coding. These activities are essentially games and activities that teach children how to think logically about objects.

Coding activities also reinforce how to break down large tasks into smaller tasks that are easier to complete and how to identify errors.

Working hands-on makes coding concepts tangible and unplugged coding activities are ideal for young coders. Unplugged coding activities are pretty easy to setup. We recently used basic coding concepts to code artwork!

## Why Teach Preschoolers to Code?

Computational thinking can be used to solve problems in almost all areas of our lives and helps kids develop some pretty great life skills that can apply to a variety of situations. A computational thinker approaches problems by:

• Experimenting and playing to solve a problem that might have more than one possible solution
• Working together with others to reach a common goal
• Persevering when faced with a difficult problem
• Finding and fixing errors in complex problems
• Designing and making solutions for open-ended problems
• Understanding their own strengths and weaknesses

Teaching toddlers and preschoolers to think like computer programmers only strengthens their ability to interact and make logical connections with computers as they grow.

Unplugged coding activities offer parents and educators a unique opportunity to get children as young as 2 started with logical thinking activities without the need for a computer.

## Storybook Coding with Frosty the Snowman

We paired our Frosty sequences coding activity with Frosty the Snowman by Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson.

We love to read books that are made from classic songs. It makes it so much fun to sing the song and read through the book.

Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day,
so he said, “Let’s run, and we’ll have some fun now, before I melt away.”Frosty the Snowman by Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson

## Frosty Sequences Unplugged Coding Activity

One part of computer programming is making having a solid plan. Computer programmers make a plan in order to think of problems that might appear and solutions for how they are going to deal with them.

## How are Sequences involved in Coding?

Sequences help children to recognize patterns that make the world around them more understandable and predictable. Sequences are one of the three basic structures in programming along with selections and loops.

With these three structures, any task can be diagrammed. In a sequence, an action leads to another actions that follows in a predetermined order or pattern.

Not only is sequencing an important concept to learn for coding, it is also incredibly important for identifying components in stories by sequencing events.

## How to Use the Frosty Sequences Unplugged Coding Worksheet

Find a safe route for Frosty to see all the sights before he melts away! There is only one correct sequence to navigate Frosty through town!

Circle the correct move for each step below to write your sequence. We like to use dry erase pocket sleeves for our worksheets in order to protect them or use dry erase markers with them.

You can also pair this unplugged coding activity with Let’s Go Code to build the maze, code out our steps, and take turns being Frosty! Thumpety, Thump, Thump!

Hi! Thanks for visiting our site! You can solve this worksheet with the following algorithm (path): Move right Move right Move down Move right Move down Move down Move left

The goal of the worksheet is to avoid the blocks with things like the traffic cop and the hot sun, which would prevent Frosty from getting to the finish block.
