My Life with a Wave
As part of our ongoing participation in the Burns Film Center Visual Literacy Program, the third graders recently visited the theater and viewed "My Life with the Wave" as well as another animated film. Prior to the trip, the children wrote original narratives telling how they would take a wave home from the ocean and what might happen once they did. Using elaborative details to vividly describe their own "private beaches," each child endeavored to make their readers feel as if they were right there at the shore!
