Last night was the successful premiere of the Ten Commandments DVD that my 4th graders filmed over the past few weeks! It opened to an audience of about 8-9 parents who visited my classroom as part of the Open House. The parents enjoyed watching their little stars on the big screen and the kids were tickled to see themselves. All in all, it was very successful. I made a copy of the DVD for each family so that they could watch it in its entirety (25 mins) at home. I enjoyed meeting the parents and took the opportunity to tell them how blessed and privileged I am to be able to serve as a catechist for their children. The kids were very excited to have their parents present.
Now that all the “dust” is settling from this video extravaganza, next week I need to get back to basics and see how many students can actually name all Ten Commandments!
