Teaching Course D to 3rd graders with no prior coding experience

Hello everyone,

I have been teaching with Code Studio for several years and have previously used Course 2 with my third grade students. I am considering switching to Course D. These students have no prior coding experience. Is is appropriate to start with Course D for third graders who have no prior coding experience? Or is Course D only meant to follow successful completion of A, B, and C?

Thank you!

Hi there!

Course D does have a quick ramp-up to get everyone up to speed. It should be just fine for your third graders.

If for some reason it seems a little too fast, just write to support@code.org and let them know!
