Self Assessment September 29, 2016

Grade: I believe that my grade should be an A because I am giving it my all in this class and I am constantly trying to improve. Sometimes I may go off track for a while or doze off but I always try to get back on track and continue working.

In the past week I have been completing many quests and earning gold. Whenever I feel like I need help in a quest, I either ask someone around me or I watch videos on how to do something. I have watched many videos that have helped me in the past quests. One quest that I just finished working on is digging deeper. Here is a link.

My goal last time was to get at least 50 gold in the 2 weeks and right now I am at 59 gold so I reached my goal. My goal for next time is to have 70 gold.

The Spell Machine

So in the spell machine quest, I had to go on scratch and play around with the sprites. After I played around for a bit, this is what I ended up doing. Link. 

I figured out how to do this by using the hints on scratch and also using what I know from previous years. Today I learnt how to make a sprite move from one costume to the other. In this case, I was able to get a scratch to break dance. I am really excited to learn more things about scratch and how to use it this year.

Semi-weekly Self Assessment, September 8th

Grade: I believe that my grade should be an A because I am giving it my all in this class and I am constantly trying to improve. Sometimes I may go off track for a while or doze off but I always try to get back on track and continue working.

In the past week I have learnt how to make clothes for my sprites which I used in the dressing room quest. I really enjoyed this quest because I figured out different ways to dress up my sprite. One thing I did not like though is that the clothes ended up looking like pjs and not like normal clothes. Here is a link to what I created in the dressing room quest.

My goal last time was to get at least 200 gold in the 2 weeks. When I wrote my last reflection, I had 60 gold but unfortunately I used 50 of my gold for a bathroom pass so right now I have 25 gold. My new goal is to get at least 50 gold by next time.

Catching Fire

So this class I went on Scratch and began testing out the looks blocks. Only a couple of them seemed to be useful for me. One that I really liked was the block that switches the costumes. So for example, in scratch I made two different costumes and was able to switch between the two. I also liked the show/ hide blocks. They are useful if for example, I want to hide one of my sprites for a while then show it later. Finally, the third look block that I thought was useful was the “say hello” block. I think this block is useful because it helps the person playing the game, understand what is happening when the sprite speaks.
