Language Arts and Scratch

  Scratch is an excellent tool for digital storytelling.  Students can combine images, text, and backgrounds with user input, animations, etc. to create projects related to creative writing, journal writing, book reports, and other language arts projects.  The use of lists and variables can be used to create tutorials and assessments over grammar, punctuation, sentence writing, etc.

The picture on the left shows a sample of an "All About Me" type of project. Here is the link to this project: About Me, An Introduction

 Here is a link to a Random Sentence Generator project.  Run the project and then look inside at the scripts used.

Look through the studios below for projects related to elementary literacy standards.  Also, check out Digital Storytelling with Scratch for more ideas on integrating Scratch into Language Arts.
