We studied Tall Tales. We hope you enjoy the movies we each made:
Our book groups just finished reading The Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson, and The Midnight Fox. Here are student-produced animotos that show change in the character over the course of the story:
April 2012: We have some new projects to share. We each studied an animal and its adaptations. If you click on the icons in our glogs, you will see the models we made, and hear our voices narrating the scenes. LOOK carefully at the pictures, we photographed our own artwork. Some glogs are still works in progress. We hope you enjoy our work so far!

September 1, 2011:
During our first math class we tried out making movies to explain math problems.
These are first drafts and our first attempts at explaining our thinking in a "how-to" movie.
We will be making lots of movies this year to share our knowledge of different topics. These projects allow us to
collaborate, explore our curiosity, be courageous, and create. Movie-making requires us to plan, make scripts, and work through frustrations together. Recording our voices for these first "how-to" videos took courage, and I loved seeing how proud students were when they finished these movies in just a few minutes of math time. Please click on the link to How-To Movies below to view some of our work from the first day of 4th grade math!
