On Friday, September 19th, the students of 8th grade and I chose to celebrate Peace One Day in a creative way. We decided to make an animated film and in this way send our peace message to the world. The song I suggested for animation was "Wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong and the students either drew pictures or wrote the lyrics, then they used their mobile phones to take photos, uploaded them to OneDrive and Luka finally made the video using WindowsMovieMaker.
Today our school celebrated its 45th birthday, and we got a surprise birthday present from our penfriends from Buenos Aires, Argentina! The cards we received were from 4th grade students from Colegio José Manuel Estrada.
We hope they will enjoy our drawings as much as we enjoyed theirs - the smiles on my students' faces show it better than any words! Here are 2 slideshows, the first with our drawings and the second with the cards we received.
Yesterday I collected all the drawings my 3rd grade students prepared for their penfriends from "International House" in Montevideo, Uruguay and I will be sending them the parcel on Monday. The theme of the drawings is WHERE I LIVE and my students were very excited to send their cards to Montevideo because of a film "Montevideo, Bog te video" which is very popular in our country. Here is the soundtrack from the second part of the film "Montevideo, vidimo se"
