Thank you to Letort PTO for treating the students to an entertaining show! Students were perfectly behaved and enjoyed it! “It is the story of the island of Proud Circle that springs a leak an its citizens must find a way to stop their home from disappearing. It takes the wondering mind of a child to save the island, its people and their ways. Adventures happen, horizons widen and important things are said.”
What an eventful week we had! I hope you got a chance to log onto the cartoons we made. Here is the link again of you didn’t get to see them. https://sites.google.com/pennmanor.net/cartoon-stories-2019/home
Last week we had an amazing opportunity to create animated stories on an App called Toontastic. Students partnered up, chose a setting and wrote a 3 part story. Then we used the school’s new touchscreen computer cart to animate the stories. The original stories can be viewed below. The students were then given another 30 minutes to spread out (less noise) and experiment more with the app. Unfortunately the app was a one time access here at school (special event just for 2P!) but you can try getting it on phones and touch screen tablets.
