Here is  a review of terms that are in the Kahoot.

  1. Programmer: A person that writes the code (language) that tells the computer what to do.
  2. Code: The language that programmers use and create to tell computers what to do.
  3. Sequence: Sequence is the very first concept a student must understand when learning to code. Also known as order of events, a computer will execute commands exactly in the order or sequence they are written. As a programmer, it is important to make sure that the commands given to a computer are in the right sequence, otherwise, a program might not run as expected.
  4. Algorithm a set of steps in order to solve a problem.

Scatch Jr. lesson Numbers

Learning Target: Students will identify the dimensions of the Scratch jr. stage and how to utilize numbers in projects.

Using directionals and numbers answer the questions.

PastedGraphic-3Answer the following questions

1.How many steps using the number pad does it take for the  scratch cat to make it across the stage?

2.How many steps does it take for the scratch cat starting from the top of the stage to reach the bottom.

3.How many steps does it take the cat starting in the top  left hand corner to reach the surf board? How many steps across….. and how many steps down?

Learning Target: Students will identify the dimensions of the Scratch jr. stage and how to utilize numbers in projects.

Scratch Tutorials Ms. Welch’s Class

Today we will give out Scratch Accounts and learn some basic functions of Scratch.

 

 

Learning target: Students will become familiar with and be able to use Scratch tools.

Scratch Tutorials continue

 

We will do the project as he does it get the same background and elements and write the same code.

Learning target: Students familiarize themselves with Scratch tools and functions.

Ms. Leah’s class

Welcome Ms. Leah’s class today we will be working with Ipads and the Program Scratch Jr. Lets watch the video and introduce this coding app.

Learning Target: I can use the ipad Scratch app. to code.

Scratch Tutorial Video

Let’s take a guided walk through this video. It is  a Scratch Tutorial. We will also migrate and be given new class accounts today.

Mr. Mac’s & Ms.Cook’s class:

Welcome back. I will be giving you a scratch account for now you can    Scratch and I will give you your sign in.

Here are some Google Doodle projects we can look at:

If you wan to make computer games Scratch is a great place to start. A game is a set of detailed instructions or Program followed by the computer. Scratch uses ready-made  blocks that make building programs easy.

In a typical Scratch project such as a game programs called Scripts control characters and objects known as Sprites. The Sprites appear in a part of the Scratch screen called the stage.

 

Sprites are things that can move around and react in a game. They can be animals and people, or even cakes and spaceships1 You build scripts to bring sprites to life. 

Scripts are made of colored blocks that you drag with a computer mouse and put together like a puzzle. Each block contains one instruction. Scratch reads through the script for the top to the bottom.
