Another Insider Look at Clay Camp

Today marks the end of the four day Claymation Camp and I have to say, this has been a great group of kids to work with. Most of them have been very engaged in their movies. Yesterday, they made great progress, although only one of the movies has actually been completed. This morning, we put the pedal to the metal, so to speak, and finish up the rest before parents arrive at 11:45 am for a premiere showing of the work these past four days.

Many of you know I am loving Animoto as a way to showcase still images.

So, check this out:

More to come as the movies get completed. And you can always venture over to our Claymation Camp Weblog site, too.

Peace (in funny little creatures),

  1. I took a look at the Animoto and the Claymation Camp site, too. It looks like everyone was enjoying the project. It also looks like your toy chest was hit hard for the class: Legos, Playmobil, and others were everywhere. Had many of the participants tried stop motion on the own before coming to your class?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Only a few of the kids had done stopmotion movies before the camp, but I tried hard to show them the tools and then get out of the way and let them proceed to experiment and play and figure a lot of things out. The teachers and I hovered nearby, gave some pointers here and there, got updates and then let them go.

  3. Sounds like it was a great week, Kevin. We also had a great week of exploring writing a bit more traditionally over at the other strand of SummerWrite! I was amazingly impressed by our group’s ability to reflect on each others’ writing and respond in such articulate and insightful ways. Looking forward to the ezine you help create with all our SummerWrite! creations.
