Summer Stories and Quiet Alone Time

Summer Stories and Quiet Alone Time will provide materials that support both the theme of the stories and the overall concept of still, self-guided exploration.

Video Vacations

Students will learn some basic tricks of videography including camera angles, storytelling techniques, and editing. Online activities include tutorials and fun projects that let their inner-director grow. During the connected week, families will be free to share their creations with the class and get inspired by their classmates’ artistic visions.
