ANIMATIONS ABOUND

Posted April 24 at 4:02pm

Some of Otisville's youngest students worked to create animations.  Students read, Animation-ish by Peter Reynolds, then used software to create animations.  These young creators learned that they could be creative contributors to the world of animation.  Kindergarten students used three frames to animate the sight word, "look."  First grade students used three frames to animate numbers.  Second grade students used multiple frames to animate a small moment in time.  Enjoy animations from Ms. Hewlett, Ms. Ruoti, Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Krogslund, and Mrs. Berger's classes by clicking the link below.
