Getting something like this is always a bit intimidating. It’s something you’re unfamiliar with and you put off getting it out of the box and trying it out. But, I decided to be brave and bust it out of the box and try it out and I’m so, so glad that I did!!!!!! It’s sooooo easy to use!!!
They come in 3 colors! Green, Red and Blue! Click on the images below to check them out!
The first thing you have to do when you get your camera is be brave and OPEN the box!!! 🙂 Here’s what you will find:
I hooked it all up and I watched this awesome little review and tutorial from Helpful Mum!! She explains it GREAT!!! So, I’m just linking to her 🙂
Then, I collected some little props that my kiddos had around the house and I took them to school. We started our unit on bears, did a schema chart, recorded our new learning, etc. We decided to focus on Black Bears to make our movie (because that was the prop that I had! Ha!!!!)
I cannot even tell you how easy this was!! It didn’t take much time at all! We decided as a class what would be included in our movie. The props and signs that had to be made were made by my early finishers at center time. I also called students over to record their voices during center time as well. The pictures and animation were done during class as a whole group.
Here’s how our movie turned out!!!! Hope you enjoy it!!!!
The kids can’t wait to try it out again!!! My hope is to get them more independent with it so that I can have groups work on it at center time!! I think our next project will be STORY RETELLINGS!!! Stay tuned! 🙂
