We have been working on colour words and learning about fall. One of the stories in one of our books has a story about hiding in the leaves. I found some awesome leaf stamps a few years ago and we used them to make these neat leaf piles and practise our colour words at the same time! Can you see the little face hiding in the leaf pile?
We made these turkey magnets with our Big Buddies! You can tell they are turkeys, right?
I love these flowers made with pattern blocks.

The one thing I have noticed is that children are fearless when it come to technology! They jump right in and try anything!
Today we made movie trailers! We teamed up with our big buddies and worked on movie trailers using the IMovie app. This app is awesome! It has a variety of templates that the students can use to create a wide variety of quick movie trailers.
Our buddy class have been making them in their class and when Mrs. Marshall showed them to me I was hooked!
We got together in small groups today and the students made movie trailers about friendship!
Then Mrs. Marshall and I made movie trailers about our students making movie trailers! It was TOO MUCH FUN! Now I have to figure out a way to share them with you!
These images are only screen shots from the trailer! They really don’t show you how cool they are! They have great music too!
The trailer templates let them put in photos and videos! The finished product really does look like a real movie trailer! We will try to share some of the trailers at our open house we are having next week to showcase all our projects! I will definitely have to find a way to share them with you!
The app is just under five dollars. I have downloaded it to my iPad already! I think it would be awesome to use this app at home and use it to keep track of special family times! I wish we had found out about it sooner! They are definitely something we want to do again!
We only have two weeks left with the iPads! Boy, I wish we could keep them!
