Stop motion Dolly

During our Genius Hour Jono and Nate were using my iPhone to do stop motion. I'm impressed that the boys put together a camera dolly with lego!

Why might using a dolly be a good idea when making a stop motion movie?

Tenacity is the quality of not giving up even when things are not going well.

Have a look at this video.

Did you notice anything? Was there someone who showed tenacity?

How have you been tenacious this week?

Morning routines...

Hi students
This week I walked around with my iPhone and grabbed some footage of our morning routine.

Routines are really important in our life they help keep us more organised. For instance I check my calendar on my phone every morning to see what meetings I have coming up and important school events. I also go to the gym every night after school to help keep me fit.

At school we have our morning routine where we make our Daily 5 choices, catch up on projects or do little chores.

A routine is a pattern of behaviours you do on a regularly. Like going to the park after swimming for a run around.

A habit is a behaviour you do so many times that you don't even think about it. A good habit is something that helps like looking both ways before crossing the street.

What are your routines and habits?

How do they help you to be organised?
