1st graders have been hard at work learning about the water cycle. We have been learning about all the different places water can go by following two drops in a reader's theater. After practicing reading it with fluency and expression, first graders were ready to hear themselves read. Yesterday we set up a giant green screen (thanks to Mrs. Klipfel for letting us borrow it) and we were ready to record.
Using the Green Screen app by Do Ink (one of our favorites) we were able to add real water, clouds and even waterfalls behind our videos. Today, we invited Mrs. Carreiro down for a special movie screening. Students said they were nervous to record but proud of their finished work..and they definitely should be very proud.
Check out our Water Cycle Reader's Theater video below. It is definitely worth a view or ten.
