Our Pirate Maps

Free website -

Last term we were learning all about writing instructions. We got to create our own islands and design pirate maps to go with them. Then we wrote instructions to help the pirates find the treasure buried on our islands. The little booklet has pictures of some of our maps.

Polar Bear Animation

I made a slide show with 16 photos. the polar bear was very full after he ate the seal. I was very excited because I remembered how to rotate & flip the polar bear so that it would change direction. The polar bear heard something so he turned around. Mrs Mac showed some of the other teachers - they were very impressed. She also showed me how to add sound effects to my movie in Movie Maker. You can hear the sound effect when you play the video.

Learning to Animate Part 2

Today K.H. completed his own animation. He made this without any help from Mrs Mc and used Movie Maker to put it all together. Now K.H. has started to teach M.B. to make animated movies so we have her movie to look forward to. Check out K.H's animation below.

Learning to Animate

Mrs Mc taught K.H and some other children how to use Paint and Power Point to make animations. We thought it was really cool and we all want to learn how to make our own animations. Mrs Mc started off by creating 5 pictures to show us how to do it. Then K.H. got to use Mrs Mc's pictures to create 3 more pictures to add to the animation. The animation in this post was created by Mrs Mc and K.H.together.
K.H. then got to start working on his own animation and has had a very busy day creating graphics for his animation. He's going to finish it next week to share with us all. K.H. is also going to become the class expert and teach some more of us how to make animations. This means we get to be experts too and teach other children in our class.
Make sure you check back regularly to see our animations as we add them.
