March 12 Meeting

     Minute to Win It Challenges were back on at our March 12 meeting! Keeping three balloons in the air for a whole minute definitely required some teamwork!  After some healthy competition, we split into our groups.
     The 5th and 6th graders had some time to continue analyzing their stories for "nonnegotiable" elements that they would not want changed in the movie version of their novels.  They then had some time to enjoy watching the movies, and think about what changes were made and why.  They were surprised by how many they saw right in the beginning of the films!  We are all looking forward to wrapping up the movies next time, as well as thinking about books of our choice to bring to life on the big screen.
     In the 7th and 8th grade group, they started with a table read of their year long multimedia story! One by one, the students read their lines around the table and practiced conveying emotion and adding emphasis to certain lines.  Then the students divided up into actoring, filming, and directing teams to focus on details for the script.  These groups worked on the first few scenes, practiced filming, and did some read throughs.  We are excited for them to start filming after MNPS Spring Break!

See you March 26!
