Three Little Pigs the Remix!!

We are learning to identify the important parts of a story, put it into a flow chart, work as a team to do the pictures for each part. Then we decided what the characters would say on each frame. Finally, we had to cooperate to record the voice overs for each slide. PHEW !!!! What a fabulous job LC16 did!!

Isabel's stop motion animation: The Accident!

Isabel listened so well at school that she went home and applied her learning to create her own photostory animation. We loved the matching sound effects Isabel!!

Team Work!

Isabel and Thomas were showing great team work to create a scene of our story map.

Beatriz and Holly persisting!!

The girls spent all of reading time putting the homonyms together. They decided they showed persistence because they didn't give up when it took a long time.

Jayden, Solomon and Kamil showing resilience:

These boys showed initiative in asking to do a stop motion animation of the story they read today in reading.

They decided that they showed resilience in trying, trying again a different way and trying again!!

We are learning how to do stop motion animations

Can you figure out how we did it??

We wanted to teach the new entrants their maori colours

- The children decided to say the maori word twice, so that the new entrant children could listen the first time and join in the second time.

To kick start our study on character resilience we dressed up for the day
