Great - but it needs a tweak.
In level 4 when you start adding extra activities beyond forward, left and right to the coding, there is a problem. The codes for dig, swim, and eat should be placed on the stone, puddle, or leaf respectively. They can't be placed on a regular trail space or there is a problem with skipping codes. For example: When you have a straight line of spaces that include an obstacle, everything seems to work fine. But, if you have a path that includes a couple forward steps and then an obstacle to the left or right of a path square, you need to code for the turn before you give the dig, swim or eat code. You do not allow for this. You require the dig, swim or eat code in the last trail space and the poor caterpillar must have to sniff around and locate the obstacle on his own since no command is given for the turn. This is a wonderful game, much more practical and affordable for the average child than the actual code-a-pillar toy.
You need to fix the problem. Then you need to advance to a full panel grid of squares and obstacles that will allow the child to determine their own path to the target. Then eventually the child should be able to write their code in a vertical list or right to left reading pattern instead of actually putting a command in each space on the grid. Great, but please, keep going. And hurry - my grandson is two - I need this ASAP!
I love using this app to teach coding at my k-5 school. It is very engaging and the music is great. I wish it had a reset button to reset it back to level 1. This way kids wouldn't be tempted to skip ahead after another student has unlocked a higher level.
