Welcome to a challenge add on.

This add on will help you plan how to add talking sprites in your program.

But, it won't give you all the steps, just a few suggestions to help you get started.

It's up to you to use your creativity and the computer science skills you've learned in this club to complete this add on.

To start, add a new sprite to your program.

And a when flagged click block.

Recall that when the flag is clicked, the store front goes to the front of the stage and the hippos appear behind it.

For the windows shopper sprite that you just added, you may want it to be in front of the store front window.

Add a hide block under the when flag clicked event to hide the sprite.

Then add a wait block to delay when the sprite appears.

Add a show block to make the sprite appear on the stage.

And finally add a go to front block so that the sprite appears in front of the store front.

You can have the sprite say something when the flag is clicked.

Or you can use any of the other event blocks.

Do what works best for your program.

Then use the say or think blocks from the looks menu to code your sprite to talk.

Consider adding two sprites for more dialog during your program.

Try out different things.

Now it's your turn.

Add talking sprites in your program.

Remember to test your code often.

When you're finished, ask your neighbor to check out your program.
