Teach Kids How To Code: Python Print Function Exit Ticket Resource

Python Programming Language

The Python Print Function Exit Ticket lets kids demonstrate their mastery of the print function.

Python Print Function Exit Ticket

Can they control screen output? Let’s start by giving them an exemplar to teach how we want them to submit code and then let the kids prove they have mastered Python’s print function. The Python Print Function Exit Ticket builds on the Python Print Function and Python Print Function Syntax Resource Packages.

What Do Kids Need To Already Know?

These concepts were covered in the Python Print Function and Python Print Function Syntax Resource Resources:

✔ User-Defined Functions, Main Program
✔ Code Organization
✔ IPO Cycle
✔ Arithmetic Operators
✔ Syntax/Compilation Errors
✔ Logic Errors
✔ Integer vs float values
✔ Strings vs Math
✔ Strings: double vs Single quotations
✔ Python:
◆ print( )
◆ string vs numeric output
◆ outputting & controlling strings and numeric data

What Do Kids Learn?

The Python Print Function Exit Ticket Resource activities cover the following concepts:

✤ Program Planning
✤ Debugging
✤ Internal Documentation: programmer comments (single and multiple)
✤ File Name Rules
✤ Python print () syntax:
◆ , (comma)
◆ * xx (repetition)

What Do Teachers/Parents Need To Know?

The best thing about these resources is that you can learn along with the kids. There are also some Python blog posts that you might be interested in.

Suggested Timeline

It should take most students three 75 minute periods to complete the Python print function exit ticket. Allocate one period for the descriptive feedback assessments and plan, and two for the actual program.
