Playing with Blockly
Posted on September 22, 2013 at 5:31 pm by and

I like learning and being creative. When school is out, I get to learn and do lots of new things. I played with Blockly the other night. Have you ever played with Blockly?

Blockly is a game that lets you make shapes in different colors and there’s lots of learning. I learned how to do multiplication and addition to make it draw.

Here’s what I made:


I’ll tell you how to do it in my AudioBoo. Click on play to listen to my AudioBoo to learn how to do it.

Do you want to try it yourself? Click here to go to the link and press the red “Run Program” to watch it draw what I programmed it to draw.

I learned about Blockly because my mom was listening to David Wees share about it online, and I wanted to try.

What do you like about Blockly?

Have you created something on Blockly before? If so, can you share it with me?

What things do you like to create?

      Dear Bella,

      Thanks for sharing Scratch. I want to try it, but I can’t tonight (which is your morning) because I’m supposed to go to sleep, but my mommy is letting me have some time to comment back.

      I went to your blog and I liked your llama.
