Is where all the action that you code takes place. Sprites can move around on the stage. Often in front of a background image called a BackDrop. Scratch measures distances on the stage in units called steps. The stage is 480 steps wide and 360 steps tall. This is useful when you are plotting the movement of your sprite.
Libraries are collections of Sprites, Sounds and Back Drops that you can load into your project. Here is where you find them.
From the Outsiders:
One Morning I woke up earlier than usual…. The Dawn was coming and all the lower valley was covered with mist and sometimes little pieces of it broke off and floated away in small clouds. The sky was lighter in the east and the horizon was a thin golden line. The clouds changed from gray to pink, and the mist was touched with gold. There was a silent moment when everything held it’s breath and it was beautiful. The clouds changed from gold to pink, and the mist was touched with gold. There was a silent moment when everything held it’s breath, and then the sun rose. It was beautiful. ….. NOTHING CAN STAY GOLD, I WAS REMEMBERING A POEM I READ.
NATURES FIRST GREEN IS GOLD
HER HARDEST HUE TO HOLD
HER EARLY LEAF SUBSIDES TO LEAF
SO EDEN SANT TO GRIEF
SO DOWN GOES DOWN TO DAY
NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY
WHAT DOES HE MEAN NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY? CAN YOU RELATE TO THIS IN YOUR OWN LIFE FOR YOURSELF OR A FAMILY MEMBER?
ROBERT FROST IS TALKING LITERALLY ABOUT TREES BUT FIGURATIVELY ABOUT PEOPLE. TREES CHANGE COLOR AND TURN BROWN AND LOSE THEIR LEAVES. PEOPLE GET OLDER START OUT FRESH AND INNOCENT AND KIND. BUT THROUGH LIFE BECOME WISER, SOMETIMES THEY STOP BELIEVING IN GOODNESS, AND BECOME BITTER AND HARD. TELL ME CAN HOW THIS RELATES TO YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW.
If yo 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 amed blacoks that make building programs easy.
What’s What in Scratch:
In a typical Scratch project such as a game programs called Scripts control characters and objects know as Sprites. The Sprites appear in a par tof the Scratch screen called the stage.
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.
Use these blocks to make the cat dance say hello and change color. Add a background and your are done.
Go to this link and join the class with the code on the front board.

Here is a link on code org lets go there now.
Lesson 1 today we are learning how to delete the Cat Sprite and put in a new one.
Go To Scratch:
