Coding with CS First – Characterization


This week, my college students will placed on their programming hats and have slightly enjoyable coding in Scratch. They are going to be choosing a personality from a narrative we have now learn, akin to Les lunettes de Lucette and Alain et Denis font du tenting, and finishing the Characterization mini unit in CS First. (Sadly, this mini unit is presently solely out there in English and Spanish however we are going to ultimately transfer on to the longer Storytelling unit which is disponible en français! On the very least, college students can change the language in Scratch to French.) The duty will likely be barely completely different from that which is printed within the CS First unit however the ideas demonstrated within the movies and add-ons will likely be fairly helpful. The duty includes selecting a personality from the story and discovering a sprite that resembles the character. I’ll present them find out how to edit the sprite to look slightly extra just like the precise character, akin to altering the hair color, for instance. College students will then add speech bubbles, thought bubbles and motion, in addition to audio recordings to accompany the speech bubbles. Right here is an instance I rapidly threw collectively, that includes Pierrette le chat from Les lunettes de Lucette:

Following this exercise, college students will start to work on the Storytelling unit to code their very own story or chapter about what occurs subsequent within the e-book they’ve learn. 

When you’ve got tried both of those models along with your college students, I might love to listen to the way it went. Remark under with any insights and ideas, s’il vous plaît et merci! 😃
