Mrs. Lord's Class
Also this week we got our books: The True Confession of Charlotte Doyle or Island of the Blue Dolphins. We will be identifying conflicts throughout the book, beginning with chapters 1 and 2.
One choice we had for our Black Sunday project was to create a BrainPOP video with a Flip camera.
Editing with Microsoft Movie Maker
We then edited our videos with Movie Maker in the Computer Lab.
We worked together to film and edit our projects.
Another choice we had was to create a Powerpoint to explain Black Sunday.
Writing Conference Sign-up
We signed up for conferences with Mrs. Lord to get feedback on our scripts.
Mrs. Lord was impressed by several students who voluntarily signed-up to meet. Some students even signed up for a second conference after the first round of feedback!
