My school has school wide rules. They are be respectful, responsible, and safe. This year we added two additional rules of be kind and a learner. I saw Tricia Fugelstad's lesson "How to be kind". I knew I had a prefect integration opportunity. I had 1st & 2nd graders do this project to introduce them to the green screen.
I explained that we were creating hearts for the green screen. One boy said, "So, we are cutting them out for our video". Using the green screen is really like magic to them! Here are two results for this project.
I had students draw their own hearts. I encouraged them to be creative with their designs. I helped them use the Do Ink Green Screen app to get their images on the screen for the video.
We used the Do Ink Animation App for the animated hearts. It was really easy for the kids to do.
Our first theme is expressive art. I plan on spending one day on this with 4th & 5th Grade. Expressive art is a 1st Grade standard so we will review what it is and learn how to plan for this type of art. I will have them complete the Envision guides I made on Canva in Seesaw.

Goodbye, Stretch & Explore.
My students were sad to say goodbye. I would say that this is one of my favorite Studio Habits.
This week was all about assessment. We will move on to Develop Craft.
