Good Morning,

Mr. Richner’s 5th graders I am not at school today. Please show kindness and patience with your guest teacher today.

Your agenda for today is as follows:

11:00 – 11:30 Typing Club
11:30 – 11:55 Animation-ish
Please choose one of the projects below to animate. You’ll share your project with me next week when I see you.
1. Life Cycle: Animate the stages of growth, development, and death of a flower.
Here is an example of how to get started. (mine is unfinished)

2. Ish-Words: Create an animation that communicates a word’s meaning(s) in as simple a way as possible. For example, the word “levitate” might float from the screen, “diminish” might shrink, and “flammable” might burst into flame.
Here is an example using the word “Melt”.
