Fourth Graders Create Music Video to Promote Respect
As part of the mid-year expectations assembly, fourth grade students at Yankee Ridge created their own music video — “It’s Called Respect!”
Students played a big part in the creation of the video by planning different scenarios and situations to film. They decided which ideas were important to show to other students. “We decided to use scenarios of students not being respectful, so that anyone watching could comment on what should have been done instead.” said Ms. Claxon.
Students used Garage Band to record their voices during class and Ms. Claxon edited it together with video footage using iMovie. During a “private screening” on February 14, students had the chance to see their film before anyone else. “They were very proud to say the least!”
