KUBO Coding and Coding+ Bundle 4-pack Version 2020
The KUBO Coding and Coding+ bundle provides a total of 4×82 TagTIles® to use with your KUBO robot and activity maps. The tiles, which snap together like the pieces of a puzzle, allow control of basic movements, time, speed, distance and direction. Students have endless possibilities to develop increasingly complex programmes using basic movements, functions, subroutines and loops.
KUBO Coding Robot
KUBO makes coding as easy as doing a puzzle! Together with its screenless, tangible TagTile programming language, KUBO simplifies abstract concepts in coding and lays the foundations for computational literacy. It also teaches essential 21st-century skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. Expect hours of fun with your kids as KUBO and its TagTiles make the complex world of programming fun and engaging!
As tactile as a TagTile
The tiles, which snap together like the pieces of a puzzle, allow control of basic movements, time, speed, distance and direction. Students have endless possibilities to develop increasingly complex programmes using basic movements, functions, subroutines and loops.
The TagTiles can be used to build increasingly complex code as students develop their capabilities but are simple enough for beginners to engage with and understand. They’re also flexible enough to teach students a number of different subjects, including music, math, and spelling.
KUBO Coding+ Extension
KUBO Coding+ allows students to become more confident programmers using functions, subroutines and loops for endless possibilities. This set takes students from basic to advanced programming skills and, combined with the original KUBO Coding Pack, provides a full K-5 solution.KUBO Coding Solution Features:
EASY TO ADOPT: Without any screens or software, KUBO removes the common barriers that many primary school teachers face when embedding technology skills into the curriculum. The solution is up and running in five minutes, with no previous experience required.
UNIQUE TAGTILE™ SYSTEM: Offers students new ways to learn — it’s as simple as snapping together the pieces of a puzzle.
HIGH CURRICULUM RELEVANCE TO MAXIMIZE LEARNING OUTCOMES: While KUBO introduces the basics of computational thinking by covering sequences, functions, subroutines and loops, its expandable solution covers multiple curriculum subjects, such as language, science and mathematics, in an open-ended, hands-on way.
EASY TO DIFFERENTIATE: KUBO takes students from simple to advanced levels of programming and computational thinking.

KUBO Robot Details
Introducing basic programming skills including routes, functions and loops in a few simple steps, the materials allow students to develop increasingly advanced programming skills through creative challenges and cross-curricular activities.
Easy to use
Set up takes just minutes, no previous experience is required, and there are no screens or software to worry about with this table-top solution.
KUBO’s programming language is just like a puzzle, which makes it great for hands-on learning. Take your students from simple to advanced levels of programming; covering routes, functions, subroutines and loops.
Beautifully illustrated activity packs
KUBO curriculum is fully illustrated with worksheets to download, assessment tasks and extension ideas. All linked to key coding curriculum targets and other core subjects.
Each TagTile set has 46 TagTiles, giving students endless opportunities to create increasingly complex commands for KUBO to execute.
The illustrated activity maps provide a playful setting for KUBO to navigate. And there is a blank map master to photocopy, for students to create their own stories and challenges
Beautifully illustrated lesson plans
You get free access to The Coding License, a series of illustrated activities introducing routes, functions and loops. Download The Coding License certificate for students to track their progress.
Coding License Overview
KUBO’s Coding License is an online platform that provides an introduction to basic concepts in coding and computational thinking. It consists of four lesson plans and 16 different activities that cover core computing and science targets from the national curriculum.
Once students have completed every section, their license to code can be downloaded and printed!
The Coding License teaching materials are the perfect starting point for introducing coding in a hands-on, screen free way.
Start with coding basics by working through Lesson Plans 1 to 4. You will be introduced to important programming concepts, including functions, subroutines and loops.
Then move on to KUBO Coding+ Lesson Plans, where you will be introduced to additional TagTiles® for more advanced programming, more challenging problems to solve, and fun solutions to create.
The Coding License explained
Our free online resources for students from four to 10 years, include illustrated activities and task cards, to view online or download; a comprehensive teacher’s guide including links to US and UK Computer Science standards, and worksheets.
There are extension activities, project ideas and assessment questions included in every lesson plan.
