For the people who were at bus patrol training and want to try this out on their own, or those who were in class and can't remember the website, here is the information for getting to the websites. Read everythign first, then start following the instructions step by step. Good luck!
The first website you want to visit is: http://cs-first.com
DO NOT sign in. I would like you to scroll down to under the sign in screen and use a join code. The join code for our class is moon49.
It will ask is 55 Upper Canada (select YES). It will ask Storytelling (select YES).
The website will give you a username and password, You need to write these down in a safe location (probably in your planner somewhere easy to find so that you have it when you are at home and at school).
You are going to select the Storytelling module/icon first. It is a green circle with a pencil inside of it.
The second website that you are going to visit is: http://scratch.mit.edu
You must sign in with the USERNAME and PASSWORD that you just got from the last website. The username will start with CS followed by numbers. You are NOT signed into you Scratch account unless you USERNAME is in the top right hand corner of the screen. (Mine is loseyk because I am a teacher).
There are a series of videos that walk you through the different steps. Try NOT to jump ahead as it sometimes will cause problems. Watch a video, Try what they ask you to, then watch the next video. There are add on's at the end of each section that let you experiment with different things (ex. adding sound effects, etc.)
Good luck, and have fun!
