Transcript

In this add-on you will add a story to your dance party by using the same block.

Cassie is already dancing, but you can make her talk to the viewer about her dance moves or the kind of music that is playing.

To do this, drag the say words 2 seconds block from the Looks menu into the scripts area.

There are values that you can change.

What Cassie says, and how long she says it.

You get to decide what Cassie will say.

For example, to make Cassie introduce herself type "Hey there! My name is Cassie" into the first box of the say block.

Leave the length of time or duration at 2 seconds.

To make Cassie introduce herself before doing or saying anything else put the say block before she starts dancing and after when (green flag) is clicked block.

Now you can add more say blocks to make Cassie welcome the viewer to her dance party.

Try adding the say block inside the forever loop and ring the code to see what happens.

(dance music)

Cassie keeps repeating herself over and over.

That's okay.

But if you want her to talk and dance a the same time without repeating herself use another when (green flag) is clicked event to start Cassie's story.

Drag out another when (green flag) is clicked event into the scripts area.

Add your say block to this new event.

Now, when you click the green flag Cassie dances and speaks without repeating herself.

(dance music)

Tinkle with the length of time that Cassie speaks and what she says.

And try using wave blocks to create a story that works for you.

Now it's your turn.

Add at least 2 say blocks to your project.

If you want the dancers to talk while dancing add another when (green flag) is clicked event to connect your say blocks to this event.

And finally, tinker with the values in your say block, what the sprite says, and how long it says it to make your story unique.
