Sick as a dog and movie making

I haven't posted in 3 days and that kills me, but in my defense, I'm sick with a sinus infection. This happens every year when Florida drops down to 20 degrees one night but then back up to 80 the next day. My poor little sinus friends can't handle it. Now I'm paying the price...


Apart from not being able to breathe through my nose, I had a great week with the kiddos. Idioms is our skill for next week, so I have decided to make a class movie with the kids. I divided them into groups of 4. Each group has been given "themed" idioms. (sayings about food, weather, feelings, animals). 


I bought this fabulous idiom set from Scholastic a few months ago and I'm so ready to put it to good use. 
ReallyGoodStuff.com also offers this product. If you click on the photo, it will take you to their website. 

This will be out first class movie. I'm excited! I wrote a grant earlier in the year for $800 worth of video equipment and my class got it, so we need to start with the movie making process. I have a very lively group and they should have NO trouble being in front of the camera. :) 

I need to start working on sheets and activities that will help us in the completion of our movie, especially in the script writing step. Stay tuned for future posts about this.

Awww, hope you are feeling better soon. A Mimio rep came to my school this past week and we talked about what it can do and I'm beyond excited about it. What I know about it only scratches the surface and I need to just find time to dig in deep.

Those books look awesome - gotta love Scholastic!

Rest and relax today - doctor's orders!
