Wow! The Halloween workshop was a HUGE success! The kids participated in making a stop motion film. It was like taking a trip to Hollywood and ‘working’ on the set of a film (without having to pack and sit on a long flight or stand in long passport lines).
We had so many sign ups, that we added a second workshop. Here is what we did:
First we had a little talk about what we were going to do. We talked about monsters and different parts that make up a monster (arms, legs, eyes, etc) and how many of these parts could monsters have. Then the kids got to work:
Some of the kids prepared spooky paper bag trees for the ‘set of our movie. Some of the kids helped to prepare the backdrop.
And finally we were ready to ‘film.’ Each kid made their monster do small movements to go around the set and with our camera, we clicked away. If you want to make your own film, be sure to read our post about making a stop motion.
Get your popcorn ready, because now you have front row seats to the premiere of not one, but two monster movies:
It’s a lot of fun to learn English with interactive experiences. The kids are so busy with their hands and their creativity, that they lower their inhibitions and really try to listen and speak. This was a truly amazing experience for the kids and ARTiculation360 as well!
