Spaceship Tag Math Game
Step 1 - Place three or four small boxes, or balls down randomly on the table and cover them with the table cloth. You will use these large objects to slightly obscure your opponents view of your spaceships, but it can not block your opponent from tagging your ship with her/his crain like tagging pole. You may also add space objects or details on top of the table cloth for more obstacles
Let me give you a crash course....by pedron
And i'm seriously not being facetious....
creating games requires a LOT of knowledge, especially if you're going to make the whole thing yourself.
first, you have to have a solid idea. that's about .00000001% of the process.
then, you have to learn to code. every movement, every interaction, every surface you touch, every fireball thrown must have it's distance, speed, color, image, properties......etc defined by you the programmer.
then, you have to get it all to work and be able to test it robustly. without a proper way to test code by unit and as a whole you will be totally hosed
Its truly a grey areaby lowfatmuffin
I've visited several preschools and a couple of daycares and sometimes its hard to tell the difference. Some daycares use preschool curriculums starting at age 2, while some preschools really aren't much more than daycare.
I think that at age 2-3 it doesn't really matter what you call it. Call it daycare, call it preschool. What I want is my daughter in a setting with kids her age where they have a good mix of free play time and structured age-appropriate activities. The school that my daughter attends doesn't teach kids to read or explicitly teach ABCs and 123s. They do things like arts and craft, music and cooking that incorporate themes like animals or seasons
