Mrs. Wieclaw and Mrs. Morgan collaborated to combine the art style of Jen Stark with stop motion movie technology.
When most of us want to learn how to do something, we turn to YouTube for some help. For the past few weeks students have been creating videos to share how to do something. Check out our How To Videos below and learn how to do some new things. Enjoy!

Students used the app Green Screen by DoInk to learn how to make a video using green screen technology. Students created a large scale and a small scale green screen video. Students will be using green screen technology to create videos based on curricular content later this school year. Please enjoy.
Students experimented with Legos and a stop motion video app called iStopMotion. Students were given a little over an hour to create a soundless stop motion video. The purpose of this activity was to get students used to using the app, to figure out what is easy about stop motion, and what is hard about stop motion. These videos are a great start to making some amazing stop motion videos in the future.
Miss Sochan, our student teacher from Illinois State University, presented students with a lesson on poetry based on the book Sky Tree: Seeing Science Through Art by Thomas Locker. Miss Sochan read and discussed the book with students. They then brainstormed vivid adjectives and verbs that would help depict the images in the book. After the brainstorming session they created lines of poetry using the words they came up with. Finally, the ordered the lines into poetry. Each student was challenged to pick one image and create art and poetry based on the image. Below are the students creations. Please enjoy!
On September 15 we read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. You can watch a video of the book to see what we read - http://youtu.be/t5mGeR4AQdM?list=PLYpLrXBn28pt9Nb3aGhSZGdwL1r-ssRo1. We discussed making our mark and passing on the gift of encouragement.
To make our own mark we created Dots and then used the app colAR mix to bring them to life. If you want to download the app these are the app's links - iOS (iPad) https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/colar-mix/id650645305?mt=8 - Google Play (android) -
