The last week before holidays includes a bit of fun and creativity. Here we are after our concert, looking festive following our rendition of Jingle Bell Rock.
Jingle Bell Rockers
Some things we do at this time of year are secret, and some things we share right away.
We were inspired by the Grade 3 students of Our Forest to make door swags as gifts for our families. We had our pruners ready to hit the woods to collect some cedar boughs (this is permitted on Crown Land that is not park land), but the day turned out to be a very rainy, stormy one. It looked like we would be drenched.
Luckily for us, another class was making centrepieces and we got some of their remaining cedar, fir, and holly. Thank you, Mrs. Harris! Take a look at the fun we had.
We are taking part in a friendly Christmas challenge with Mr. Kirkpatrick in the UK. His students have been playing with Pivot stick figure animation, and so has Huzzah. We used Creative Commons images and music–and a bit of creativity–and voila! Christmas cheer on the dance floor! So this is a friendly exploration of creativity–not a competition like “So You Think You Can Dance”!
Below are two videos, both by Sam. One was posted to YouTube, the other to Vimeo. Can you notice a difference in quality? Students have started to embed the videos on their blogs. Take a look at Sophie, Nicholas, Blake, Micheal G., Chelsea, Haley, Kris, Daniel C. and Max, who got their videos embedded today. The rest of the class will be loading the rest of the videos onto their blogs over the next few days.
