Claymation Myth Project

Things are moving along well with our claymation my project! Below you'll see some photos Adany took of our work in progress. I also loaded a 5th grade class' animation of The Hare and the Tortoise. You can see that they don't animate every moment of the script, which is fine. They also use very simple sets, and are narrating the story, which is what we will be doing.

The link to the website Kids' Vid is also below the video, and it gives some good hints for writing a script, storyboard, and turning your animation into a video.

5th Grade Class, St, Joseph School

Chorus Concert

Chorus has been working hard on a beautiful song with two parts in the genre Latin Jazz. Listen to how wonderful they sound, and notice how professional they sound! Both the teachers and the 4th Graders loved the performance!
