Curious about White Spot Inspectors?
They live in artists' pockets and come out to inspect artwork for any white spots they might need to touch up. See my post here. Go directly to the Fugleflick video here. You can download my lesson from this link. Want to see all the first grade white spot inspectors? See the Artsonia Gallery here.
Results: Thanks to all who took the time to vote
UPDATE: I just received an email this morning congratulating us for being in the top 20 of this nationwide contest for BIG prizes. Your help with voting this past month put us in the finalist round! Thank you.
Judges will review the top 2o entries and determine in January who will win prizes valued up to $15,000 for their schools. Stay tuned :)
I made a video of one of our most innovative class projects and entered it into the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Curious Classroom Contest. We are hoping to win prizes for our school and you can help by voting daily from now until November 30th. The top 20 videos will then be judged by a panel to determine who wins prizes valued up to $15K. Here is more info from my original post of our Green Screen Stop Motion Station animation project where students demonstrated movement over their art. This project was funded by a grant received through ABC/25 foundation.

In an attempt to acquire the iPads we are still needing for the art room, we just completed a movie to enter into this Internet Safety contest. Only 5th grade girls participated this time in this very cute production animated in Keynote. The Grand prize is $10,000 with two second place prizes of $1000. If we qualify, there will be voting. So please help us out when/if the time comes. Click the image below to view the movie on the contest site. Please create a login and rate the movie. Later we will be begging for votes:) Views and Ratings do count when they decide on the finalists.
Please click on the link above to view the movie to help boost our numbers, but if the movie doesn't run nicely on their site, you can view below via Vimeo.
