Are you in the middle of a coding unit and have to take the day off? Maybe you’re noticing students aren’t learning some key skills? Whether you need a break from the content you’re teaching or don’t want to lose momentum. The no-prep coding sub plans are designed with your needs in mind!
These coding sub plans will keep students engaged even when they’re not writing code! Decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithm design are all covered in these plans.
When you’re not sure where to start teaching coding or when you need to switch up your coding units, these plans are perfect. They’re also perfect for when you need to be absent. Taking a day off when students are enjoying a coding unit can be tough. These activities and lesson plans let you take a day off without worrying about disruptions. They’re also super easy for substitutes to follow, so they’ll have a smooth learning experience while you’re gone.
💜 YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE HOW EASY IT IS FOR STUDENTS TO BUILD THEIR CODING SKILLS, AND THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU SAVE LESSON PLANNING!

AFTER downloading this resource you’ll get:
⭐4 lesson plans that outline necessary materials, suggested read-alouds, and easy to follow steps to complete the plan.
⭐lesson plans and materials that focus on problem-solving, pattern recognition, decomposition or reverse engineering, and sequencing.
⭐differentiated activities that work with students in PreK – Grade 6. Activities include, coding a theme dance, completing patterns, solving logic puzzles, completing simple sequences, and breaking down how everyday items work.
This activity supports the following standards:
- Model daily processes by creating and following algorithms (sets of step-by-step instructions) to complete tasks.
- Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem.
- Decompose (break down) the steps needed to solve a problem into a precise sequence of instructions.
- Debug (identify and fix) errors in an algorithm or program that includes sequences and simple loops.
- Create programs that include sequences, events, loops, and conditionals.
- Decompose (break down) problems into smaller, manageable subproblems to facilitate the program development process.
- Test and debug (identify and fix errors) a program or algorithm to ensure it runs as intended.
ISTE STANDARDS FOR STUDENTS:
- Students break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.
- Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.
