Through A Student's Eyes

Have you ever given a video camera to your students and allowed the kids to share events happening in the classroom?  I recently allowed my kids to use my flip camera to film whatever they felt was most interesting.  I have enjoyed watching what the kids gravitate to through their videos.  This edited compilation is entitled, Through a Students' Eyes.

I love the imagination in my class as they develop their descriptive stories.  You just heard my second graders read their paper with the flip camera. Although there are some challenges holding the flip while reading, I felt they did an overall outstanding job. Did you catch the gal reading her unique story develops through a dream? Ahhhh,  I just gush at all the skills picked up during our genre study.  She's incorporated time cue words, onomatopoeia, dialogue, and inner thoughts. I couldn't help but chuckle when listening to her last line where she reads dot. dot. dot (ellipsis).


Did you noticed her story ends when her dream ends? Remarkable small moment!
