Today was the first day of RESULTS for 1st and 6th graders... and it was so much fun! The first graders started their day with some Go Noodle (Pop See Ko!), which is always a blast!
Then we talked about screen casting. I showed them a few YouTube examples:
And the students worked on storyboarding their own math related stop-motion! The kids are really excited about this new adventure - and so am I!
The 6th graders were introduced to stop motion animation today. I showed them a Prezi I created showing TONS of awesome examples! I also showed them my Lego stop motion attempts. Some students started planning their animation! Click here to access the planner the students used. Then, the students shared their progress with the group (sorry the picture is so dark!).
It's going to be a great year with these kiddos!
Chula Vista Hills Elementary had a FANTASTIC morning! We had a very special assembly... GoNoodle! Have you heard of GoNoodle? It is an online program that helps channel kids' physical and emotional energy for GOOD. It's free and the best part is... kids LOVE it! Our friend from GoNoodle, Raffi, talked to kids about stress, and 3 strategies how to conquer it, The first strategy we practiced was BREATHING. The second strategy was to LOOSEN UP. The final strategy is to HAVE FUN and do something that makes you smile and laugh - like dancing! Here are some awesome photos and videos that I captured during the assembly!
Oh - and we also had a very special guest stop by - Mr. Cat Man!!!
Thank you Raffi, and GoNoodle for paying our school a very special visit. Please come back soon!
