In this fairy tale, a young boy named Denis is introduced to the world of block coding and learns how to create simple programs. With the help of his parents, Denis learns how to use different colored blocks to give instructions to a computer. This story teaches kids about the basics of coding and encourages them to explore the endless possibilities of technology.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a young boy named Denis. Denis was very interested in technology and loved to learn about how things worked. One day, his parents bought him a special computer just for kids, and Denis was excited to start learning how to code.
Denis's parents explained that coding was a way to give instructions to a computer, just like a recipe gives instructions for cooking. They told Denis about block coding, which was a simple and fun way to start learning.
Denis opened up his block coding software and saw a screen filled with different colored blocks.
Each block represented a different instruction, like moving, turning, or making a sound. Denis's parents showed him how to drag the blocks onto the screen and snap them together to create a program. They started by showing Denis how to make a simple program that made a character move across the screen.
First, Denis dragged a "move forward" block and snapped it to a "when flag clicked" block, which would start the program when he pressed a button. Then, he dragged a "turn" block and snapped it to the "move forward" block, so the character would turn around at the end of the screen.
Denis was so excited to see his program in action that he couldn't wait to try more. He added more "move forward" blocks and "turn" blocks to make the character dance around the screen. As the character danced, Denis noticed that he could change its appearance by clicking on it and choosing from a variety of different costumes. He made the character wear a top hat and a monocle, and even turned it into a robot.
As he played with his program, Denis learned about how different blocks worked and how he could combine them to create more complex programs. He was having so much fun that he didn't even realize how much he was learning.
Denis's parents were very proud of him and encouraged him to keep practicing and learning more. They knew that with a little bit of hard work and creativity, Denis could do anything he set his mind to.
And so, Denis continued to explore the world of block coding and became a master programmer, creating all sorts of fun and exciting programs for his friends and family to enjoy. The end.
