What does a day in your classroom look like? We were visiting Mr. Avery’s blog and we saw that last year they made a time-lapse video showing everything that happened in their day. We thought that was a fantastic idea and we wanted to try it ourselves! We set up an iPad in the corner of our classroom and programmed the Motion Pictures app to take one photo every 10 seconds throughout the day. The app compiled the photos into a video, then we added some music and text using iMovie. Now we have a video showing our entire day in less than 90 seconds!
When you watch this video, see if you can spot:
- Our Morning Meeting
- A Mystery Skype call where we met our new friends in Ohio
- A readaloud and video about Ruby Bridges, in honor of Civil Rights Day next week
- Our daily 2-minute dance break, and…
- A surprise fire drill!
What would we see if we could spend a day in your classroom?
