Day 1 Review

These notes touch on the lesson delivered from the lesson plan Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch: Day 1, delivered on February 20, 2008.

When asked about what they would like to create in Scratch, the students answered:

Andre is in Kindergarten and needs a bit of extra help in manipulating the Scratch user interface.

I reminded the kids that we were going to send home their work, so they might want to consider their subject matter accordingly, since their parents might not appreciate ultra-violent work.

Changing the lesson plan to more firmly introduce the Names project worked pretty well, this time I got all 6 students to save a name-related project before the end of the class. We will still need to revise our lesson plans to account for this. We will do a review in the middle of the next class, after we get a chance to polish the name projects further.

The names of students have been changed to protect their privacy.
