This Fugleflick interactive eBook is an exhaustive collection of 48 student-created, art-related award-winning super clever videos that will engage and entertain any student. They were made by kids for kids, oozing with creativity and child-centered educational content from classroom management issues to kindness to basic art concepts to simple encouragement to try your best.
This book also contains movie trivia, how to's, behind the scenes movies and photos, articles, and exclusive content that will inspire and inform the viewers.
The 114-page web-based ebook takes students directly to their favorite movie embedded on the page. I also included a QR code for each movie to give you more options for how to use this book with students.
- Early Finisher Station on a Tablet: This book can be pulled up on a tablet using a web browser with the QR code (page 3). Save icon on the tablet with the "save to home screen" option. Students can click through and watch the movies embedded on the pages. I recommend headphones.
- Host an all-class Film Festival: Project the web-based eBook on your screen and show one movie at a time. Reflect on the learning objectives, creative choices, and storytelling techniques.
- Daily Dose of Creativity: use this eBook to sprinkle creativity into your daily routine. Explore one movie a day as a joyful brain break
- Seesaw Lesson and Reflection: I included a Seesaw lesson (page 113) and the reflection activity page for you to customize. You can assign my 10-page seesaw activity, or link to the entire eBook and attach the reflection page where students can respond with their voice and art to their favorite Fugleflick.
- Remote Learning: this is a web-based eBook. All you need to do is post a link to share this amazing resource, hours of videos, with your students
- Print and SCAN QR Codes*: I included a 51 page PDF of all 48 movie poster pages with QR codes that you can print. This gives you the opportunity to have a choice-based Fugleflick film festival. I like to lay the pages out on a long counter and invite students to scan the movie they want to see with our class set of iPads. HINT: put the pages in sheet protectors, and add them to a binder.
