Readbox by Mrs. Myer’s Class

IMG_0456

Mrs. Myer’s reading class created a “Readbox.” If you scan the QR code on the books they posted, you’ll see a student created video trailer.  To create these videos, students first made characters and settings out of craft and art supplies.  Then these used these with the iMovie app on the iPads to create their trailers.

Check out their videos below or in the hall outside their classroom!

Lego iMovie Trailers

Students in Mrs. Sharp’s and Mrs. Downey’s Math and Writing classes used Legos to practice skills! First, they created lego houses based on a STEM activity created by Mrs. Downey. They found the area and perimeter of each of the rooms in their houses, and made sure to include at least one simple machine and working light.

Then, in writing class, they created Lego video trailers using the iMovie app.  I created templates for them to use here:

But there are many iMovie Trailer templates out there! Here’s a few more I’m considering using next time:

iMovie for iPad – Storyboard Help Sheets

iMovie for iPad Printable Storyboard Templates

Here’s what the students created.  They only had one class period to write and film their trailers!
