My Students

My students come from a low income neighborhood. All of my students are on the free food program. My students are interested in learning. They enjoy working together to solve problems. I see them talk through a problem and help each other to understand. My students prefer hands-on projects as their learning modality. They enjoy activities. I have to constantly challenge them to go beyond.

This studio kit will allow my students to create stories using characters that interact.

My students will be able to collaborate and use their creativity. I always see smiles on their faces when they write a good story. With technology, my students can turn their written stories into moving stories.

My Project

This project will add an element of creativity to my students' stories. They will use characters that they can make come to life through movement and dialect. These simulators have characters that can smell, see, hear, and feel. They will have their character interact with another character through simulation.

My students will be able to learn about stop motion and designing sets to fit their story.

They will need to collaborate and cooperate while putting their creativity into a short film. My students will take their stories to a new level. When their film is completed, they will be able to share their film with their peers and their families.
