Need to look at: teacher has created long list of cartoon Pixar (and other) shorts to be used to teach reading strategies. She also has graphic organizers to go with them....Totally and completely amazing! What a great way to get (and keep) the kids' attention!
Using movie shorts in the classroom can be very engaging. Guide your students to make inferences using a Pixar short. The post includes two free graphic organizers to help your students! Perfect to use for any book or video.
Pixar's "Day and Night" short film. I used this today for a first grade science lesson on day sky vs. night sky and it was a PERFECT set. It highlights some of the good things about each to get the wheels turning in their head, and the kids really enjoyed it! I followed it up by a Venn diagram of day and night that we completed as a class.
