Encouraging Vocabulary Usage

General notes on encouraging vocabulary usage with young children:

  • The goal is to introduce Computer Science (CS) and Spatial Language vocabulary to young children as they explore computer science ideas with concrete objects, not to make them memorize vocabulary.
  • Teach Computer Science and Spatial Language vocabulary as naturally as you would introduce the names of different foods, animals or toys.
