Do not begin. If you ask the question "how to begin" then you are not ready.
If you are forced to begin teaching, here are some ideas:
- for you: learn C++ well so that you can answer any question that children may ask.
- explain to children that:
they write a text file .cpp that will be transformed into .exe
a C++ program has a special and unique function named main()
and that's where the program starts
variables hold information that can change
variables have more types: int
depending on what information they hold
inside functions there are structures such as if()
, and explain what they do
If you do the above, you will teach the children the basics of the C language.
If you want to continue and teach C++, you need to explain the Object Oriented Programming (OOP) style, and teach them to use elements of the C++ Standard Library (STL).
