Maybe on a June afternoon, when the kids are antsy, but I think it far better to create movies WITH students. Much more interesting and educational.
Jordyn & Pauley's Project
Elementary School Art
A few years ago we created a number of multimedia presentations! Our core French teacher, M. Gagnon, helped students create a display of plasticene Aliens. The staff created an Art Show. We wrote the melody after we wrote the words. We created an SK Reading buddies guide(I created a pdf file of the information.) Student created some PowerPoint projects on Superheroes.
In 2001, students wrote letters of appreciation to our Peacekeepers serving overseas. CO1 Dennis Irwin, our penpal sent us photos of his experiences. I created an iMovie. Students wrote to him and he wrote them back.
