PuppetPals

One of my favorite apps! Now available at both schools, PuppetPals allows students to create puppets (of anything...even themselves!), choose a background, and make a movie. There are endless possibilities, from animal adaptations to famous Americans. Check out the example below from a student in Mrs. Coffin's third grade class at North Landing. What a fun way for students to demonstrate their learning! Want to give it a try? Just let me know!

Green Screen

Also available at both schools is Green Screen. Students can choose an image or video for a background, and then video themselves in front of the green screen. Put the two together, and voila! They are standing in front of the Parthenon telling everyone about Ancient Greece! If the students can dream it up, we can make it happen. Talk about engaging!
