Last Day of School!!

Well, my last day with students at Bolivia finally came and went. This week has been a flurry of last minute finishing touches on bobble heads and stop motion projects, passing back all the artwork I've been hoarding, putting up our art show at central office, painting ceiling tiles and having our art club party (thanks for all the frosted donuts and cupcakes)!!

Every year on the last day at Bolivia, teachers come out to the parking lot to make a tunnel for 5th graders to run under on their way to the bus. As is tradition, the buses then do a lap around the parking lot to say goodbye. Here's a few shots from my phone. 

Stop Motion Animations

Our 5th graders have worked very hard to finish up their stop motion animation projects. Students organized themselves into small groups and worked on concept development, storyboards, photography and music selection. We finished the project this past week with a school-wide presentation!

Below are several highlights, followed by links to each group's video for student viewing. We hope you enjoy our films!!!
