Animate a name

#433

here’s my first time and first project in scratch :https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/183805613/
i feel that i want more time to play and try another project


#434

I agree - this would make a great activity to do with children!


#435

I love it! Isn’t this a great example of what the creative learning spiral is all about?! Reflecting on the project so far and then imaging what else it can do … #creative

Here is my name animation project. I personalised it by using a photo I took today as the background. At first I felt quite grumpy that I have a long name and therefore more work to do, but then I realised I could create my animation to work like a row of dominoes so that each letter animates one after the other. Because I like music, I decided to get each letter to play a musical note, and in this case, I used a pentatonic scale to create something harmonious.

I enjoyed using the basic coding. It was much easier than I expected.

Hi
I’ve been exploring curves this week after spending a day with an amazing creator who builds 3D curved paper structures by folding 2 d paper with straight lines. So I thought I’d have a go with something similar in scratch. You can try to create your name (or one letter in your name) with curves created by clicking the star sprite to stamp it in 3 spots, then pressing the space key to draw a curve. Click more and you can create another curve. I’d love to see your results! The project is here:

That was fun! I’ve played a little bit with scratch before - at school we also use mblock to programme mBots - so was great to transfer skills. My year 8 students are expert scratchers and transferred their skills to using mblock. I’ve also just brought a micro:bit and the interface looks like scratch - can’t wait to tinker with it - I think my scratch and mblock experience will help!

I was able to follow the ‘animate your name’ tutorial very easily and was able to ‘tinker’ a little to create the my desired effect but could easily spent a lot more tinkering time on it! Loved how the tutorial was on the left hand side of the screen - this would be an awesome way to introduce scratch to my students (I’ve recently created a teacher account in scratch).

I uploaded a photo I took from my travels - my partner and I tramp (go hiking) and the next 3 sounds I added were downloaded and uploaded from the freesound website www.freesound.org. It was great to be able to personalise - I chose a cat sound to represent our cat, birds song to represent the birds we hear on our tramps and waves…because I love being near the sea.

The frustrating thing about animation, I’m directionally challenged!! On top of that, I need to remember the sprite’s boundaries are a square around it and this can impact position. I’ll have to work on this.

No razzle dazzle here. But …

I love Scratch. It makes me feel young. I am able to create and interact my ideas. I feel so good to be creative and innovative with Scratch. With Scratch, I can easily connect with my children.

I never thought I would enjoy programming… I was planning to give it 10 minutes max! I ended up spending almost an hour!!

This was so much fun and I believe nest time I will express myself more in my future projects!!!

My Name Animation

Well, that was fun! I learned a lot about Scratch and enjoyed my first experience programming! Thank’s LCL.


#445

I have done this activity previously, but found it to be a good review of the basic commands. My 4th had 5th graders projects always eclipse mine!


#446

Hola ya habia utilizado un poco el Scratch aqui les dejo mi proyecto, manteniendo la escencia de las intrucciones.


#447

This is amazing!! I love the effect of the combined lines. Thank you for sharing a tool for us to make with! :slight_smile:

在中国打开Scratch网站很慢,影响了我的学习。:sweat:
