Look What We're Doing With Technology!

 

Looking Back at Lower School and Thinking About the Future:

As an end of Lower School activity, I asked our 4th graders to illustrate a favorite activity from their year(s) at TVS. I then asked them to think about what they would like to do for a career. It will be interesting to look back when they graduate to see if they still have the same goal in mind.

The video files were so large that I had to break each class into two parts. Click on the links to view their movies.

Alliterations and More: Featuring the Alphabet!

The students discussed the book, The Z Was Zapped by Chris Van Allsburg and then created their alphabet book of alliterations. They wrote their alliteration then illustrated it with the Drawing Box app. The next step was to pull it into the ChatterPix Kid app where the sentence was recorded and the video was saved to the camera roll. The students air dropped their video to me and I combined all into an iMovie.

Let it Snow!

Students drew a snow person according to how they answered questions on a glyph. Enjoy their creations.

 

 

Bio-Poems and the Tellagami app

The students used the self-portrait that they drew in Microsoft Paint and inserted it into the Tellagami app for a backdrop. They then wrote a bio-poem and narrated the avatar that they created. I took the video clips and combined them in iMovie for each class.

International Dot Day

By the time the students came to me for International Dot Day, they had either read The Dot or had watched a video of it but that didn't mean they didn't want to hear it again! And, when the students found out that I also had Peter Reynold's Ish and Sky Color, we couldn't even begin the activity until I had read BOTH books! The students decided they just wanted to create. Some created images from a dot while others made some type of "ish" picture. Then I decided to let them experiment with the ColAR Mix app. They weren't as "wowed" as the younger children but they did enjoy doing a walk-around to see what their classmates had created.

(This video only has Mrs. Malone's and Mr. d'Auteuil's classes; Mrs. Wright's class wasn't finished at the time of posting. They'll be added later.)
