      Nina,

      I really loved your project. I particularly liked how you extended and made your own the circle of squares project from the tutorials.

      I am curious to know a bit about what it was like for you to learn this block based language and to express yourself (at least a little) with it. Please do share.

        When learning this block based language I was very much reminded of Scratch, another block based coding language. Visually the programs are very similar as well as in the way of placing the blocks, so I was immediately comfortable with the navigation of the program. I did like how there was a turtle on the screen that actually ran the code you made, it was a very cute addition to the program. I had fun kind of just drawing using the coding blocks. I was able to make a couple different images and with the help of the tutorials I was able to make them look really cool. I enjoyed using Turtle Block coding over Scratch because of the way the program displays the finished code.

          Nina,

          Thanks for your feedback. I found that younger students (4th and 5th graders, tend to agree with you about preferring TurtleBlocks over Scratch. They have reported that it feels to them that they are really making something, which is interesting.
