Goal: Create a short, short story using the GoAnimate Full Video Maker.
Focus Skills: Writing, revising, story elements, problem solving, critical
thinking, and collaboration.
1. Can I do this? You have been listening, watching, and telling stories your entire life. All of the books you have read, movies you have watched, and video games you have conquered have prepared you to tell your own stories. This is your chance to create!
2. How long does it have to be? This is a short, short story assignment. My two minute video is almost too long.
3. Can I work with a partner? Yes, if you want to. You can collaborate using one account or both make videos and simply help one another.
4. When is it due? You will have four class sessions to work on this project. Is that enough time? Yes, if you use your time wisely. Students often put in extra time when they can. At the end of the last work day, you will post your video.
5. Is this graded? No, but we will watch the completed videos in class. We will vote to chose which class videos should be in the 5th grade film festival.
6. How can I get help? I can help in the mornings right after breakfast. However, I want you to be - as much as possible - independent problem solvers with this project.

Here is Last Year's film festival!
Today we will:
1. Provide feedback for at least five classmates while preparing for the quiz.

Feedback is Specific!
Today we will:
1. Review feedback, if any, and make revisions before publishing again.
2. Move on to vocabulary assignment #2!
Vocabulary Assignment #2
Choose a new word from the vocabulary assignment that has not been used. Note that all highlighted words are taken. Next, teach the word with a video just as you did before. This time YOU MUST use the full video maker. If you didn't get a chance to take the interactive tutorial, I've posted a video of it below. Good luck students!
Today You will...
1. Read assignment directions and watch examples.
2. Choose a vocabulary word from the list to teach to your class.
3. Create a video that teaches your word.
4. Have a teacher or classmate watch your video for feedback.
5. Make revisions and publish your video!
You will choose a word from the list below. You will create a "Template" video that teaches the word. Here are some rules:
a. Your video title must be your vocabulary word.
b. Your audience should be able to infer the word meaning if you don't give a definition.
c. A classmate or teacher must watch your video before you publish.
Define Your Word!
When I am reading and I find a word I don't know, I try to infer what it means by looking for text clues. When I can't do that, I use Google or a dictionary. Click on the links below to investigate your word.
Examples to Help you!
Below you'll find example videos. You will have two class periods to finish this assignment.
