Wednesday was designated Green Day at Iroquois West. Every class was challenged to use as little paper as possible for the whole day. In music, 3rd grade began figuring out a new dance using directions on the Smartboard. 2nd grade created pictures of instruments in the woodwind family using WordFoto on the iPads. Their work is posted on Artsonia. 1st grade began illustrating a book called Fortunately (based on a book by the same name by Remy Charlip) using the neuKidsDraw app on the iPads. Below are some pictures of the 1st graders working on their illustrations.

Today in Music Class we experimented with sound using this website:
In 2nd and 3rd grade we have been working for many weeks of music classes on a short animated movie using the iPads. Each class listened to one of the songs from the Nutcracker Suite. Then each student came up with a short one or two sentence scene that they thought would go nicely with the music we listened to. We then spent the next 6 weeks illustrating our scenes and animating them. Below you will find 3 exemplary movies.
