KINDNESS: Manaiakalani Film Festival

This year the students from Room 25 wanted to make a movie about 'kindness'. As we filmed this movie and talked about different ways of being kind, it became clear that when you are kind to others they will be kind back. We hope you enjoy our movie because we had so much fun making it.

Fun Friday

On Friday our Olympics Day was cancelled as it was too cold for the kids to be out on the field all day. They were so disappointed, I made the call to have a fun art day.

Our Magical Kingdom

Last week we decided as a class to take down our Olympic art and replace it with a beautiful mural. To keep both the boys and girls happy we made a stone castle and a rainbow castle, we had knights on horses and wild talking horses. The girls made a forest of feathers for the pixies to live and the boys made a haunted wood where a ghost lived. we made flying dragons and drew a huge rainbow. There was lots of glitter involved........lol......

 For the next 3 week we are writing narratives about the mural. It has been exciting and some of the stories coming out are wonderful. I have started reading them the Sword In The Stone, and showing them some clips on You Tube on what it was like back in those days. But most of all its about letting your imagination run wild and having fun with your writing.

 Here are some pictures of our mural. (It is still a work in progress)
