Scratch Club 22May13

My notes from the Scratch Club this week...

We covered variables today, using them to try and track the game score and lives left.

What went well:

  • Everyone was interested in variables and most got this idea
  • Behaviour was much improved today, the kids really got down to the task quickly
  • One of the students discovered the music blocks and created some pretty cool rhythms.

What could be improved?

  • We had a two week gap, and a few of the kids have forgotten most of what we learnt before!
  • Not all kids have Scratch at home, so I've written a letter to go out to the parents: Get the kids using Scratch at home
  • I'm still teaching only 8 kids, but there are many more in the school that want to take part.

Ideas

  • Some kids clearly know what they are doing now, so could help run the club? 
  • If we can have good behaviour and a recognition program so that we know when we have new trainers ready then I think this could work.
