The 4th Graders have completed their Explorer iMovies (audio letters) and I'd like to share them with you. I've created a YouTube playlist for each teacher. Look below for the links! I was very impressed with how they turned out! Enjoy!

I was lucky enough to visit all three 4th grade classrooms today (Mrs. Ortiz, Mrs. Sutton, and Mrs. T) to begin a new digital media project! All of the 4th graders have been learning about famous explorers, and they wrote a formal letter describing their journeys. The students located some images on the internet, saved them, and began an iMovie. They extended the length of the photo, added filters, adjusted the Ken Burn effect (if needed), and added a title. Tomorrow, we will be recording their letters audibly. They will read and record them into iMovie! So much fun! Here is a few photos of the students working hard to find images and add them into iMovie! More to come in the following days!
The 6th Graders had the awesome opportunity to participate in Egypt Day today! They attended different stations: art, language, math, and even got to feast like an Egyptian and share their Egypt songs! Click here to visit the Egypt Day channel on YouTube with all the students' Egypt Songs... and check out all their awesome costumes with our green screen video below:
Here are Mrs. Ortiz's 4th grade iMovies about Animal Adaptations! Students worked hard learning about adaptations, researching their specific animals, creating their storyboards, and creating their iMovie to educate their audience on their animal. In no particular order...
