Forts and Lego Animation

Jonas, Amelia, and Rio thinking of ideas for the fort

The weather has been amazing in the mornings, so it’s no surprise that the outdoor forts have been a popular choice for self directed time. The kids have been creating wonderful ideas on what to do with it. We even had a picnic outside in the fort last Thursday! (Which was also pajama day.)

PJ day!

Another popular activity has been lego stop motion animation. Almost all of the episode groups have checked off the checklist and have built the setting, created characters, outlined a storyboard, and have written a script. To enhance our skills we called in an expert, Johnny Villarreal, to bring technology equipment and knowledge to help us make our movie. Meet Johnny here!
