Turtle Logo Fun

Having the opportunity to play with the Turtle was fun, as it has been almost a year since my last go-around. I have found some changes have occurred since the last time I played with this program - it seems as if the block programming has been simplified and re-sorted to make it easier to navigate and find the blocks you need to make your program run.

I decided to make a "paint" program that would allow the user to control where the turtle drew a shape or had free draw. I took advantage of the cartesian grid and had the turtle do one shape if the mouse y-value was greater than 0, and a different shape is the mouse X-value was greater than 0. This left one cartesian corner where the user can free draw.

I have discovered I am still terrible at drawing with a mousepad on a laptop, but that is a self portrait in the lower left quadrant, and it's happy to see you.Cartesian Grid Paintcode for cartesian paint program

      Hi Suzie! I noticed the changes too and thought they were simplified as well. It could help my beginning readers in K :) 

      I think you are an excellent artist!

        No offense Alicia - but you're used to seeing kindergarten drawings:) LOL! I'm good for that level! I feel so bad for my poor students when we are sketching for engineering and I'm drawing stick figures and they're shading wheels and creating contours in their cars.

          That is hysterical.
