    Finish early? Head to the SCRATCH Tutorials page on my website. Watch and complete the 1st and 2nd tutorial (bottom of page). If allowed, create an account and write your username and password in your agenda. If you cannot, that is ok. Explore Scratch for the remainder of the period. Do not go past the second tutorial until you have finished your storyboard!!!
