Hi Tracy!

I think you may have forgot to replace some of the sections from my list with your selections! smile

I'll put the ones that have to be changed in italics

Art – Works of Leonardo DaVinci
Science –Plant classification
Culture – United States  (Location on map, flag, national symbols, national landmarks, provinces, provincial flags)
Perfect Pitch - G (in whole note, half notes, and quarter notes)
Vocabulary - Wild Animals, Food, shapes
Math – number words , skip counting by 10's
Phonics - words ending in sh
Whole Words – first 20 from dolch wordsThe 3rd 20 from dolch words are not yet taken( could you give me the list of the last 20 words???)
Poetry – My Shadow- Robert Louis Stevenson
Music – Musical instruments (different set from what was shown in Annisis' video), rhythm (ta, ta, teetee, ta), Composer portraits (Bach, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Mozart, Bizet)
World Language - Colours, shapes, farm animals, children's toys in words, --Polish
Eye Tracking
Geography – European Countries
History-  Civil War

Replaced it. So sorry about that. I was multitasking when I was typing this out. LOL.
I'm glad to have you involved! smile

Sorry about that. I was multitasking when I typed everything out. I fixed everything up above.
I will need the list of the 3rd list of 20 sight words that you would like

Awesome, Tracy!

That looks great (though you forgot to change your music! LOL).

I would suggest that you go ahead and start gathering images (the better quality you can find, the better) an keeping them all in a folder. I'll show you how to make the word  portion and put everything together once a few more people have signed up for their topics.

Okay, so I looked at Windows Movie Maker on my computer and I can see how you can edit videos...I have even done that before. I can see how you can make a slide show of pictures. I do not see how you can make a video like the original video that was posted. I even looked up information on how to use the program on microsoft.com...all they show is how to make a slideshow of pictures really, not much else. I do not know how to use this program at the moment so can someone please help those of us that do not know. I was really excitied but now I am confused and feeling a little bit defeated already Sad . So please share how to use the program so I can try to get started.  Cool

Thanks smile

Don't worry - I'll make sure everyone can use it. I would like for everyone o sign up for their topics first though so I know that I'm not wasting my time smile I look forward to seeing what everyone chooses!

I did one about 2 years ago I used Photo Story 3 for windows. It was free and pretty easy, but I got too busy to do more. Here is a sample.

Since it was I that suggested we add World Religion to list, I thought it might be helpful to post the POI list that I created for the topic. (I plan on making books out of photo books for Josiah based on these POI)

POI (per religion)   
1   basic definition
2   founder/iconic figure
3   place of worship
4   name of scripture and language
5   primary teachings (ie. 10 commandments)
6   afterlife beliefs
7   distinctive tradition
8   number of followers presently and year founded
9   denominations? Countries?

And what I've found, these are the most influential modern religions, presently:

Major Religions
HInduism
Judaism
Zoroastrianism
Buddhism
Shinto
Confucianism
Jainism
Taoism
Christianity
Islam
Sikhism
Baha'i

I will be doing Hinduism and sarahjean will be doing Baha'i.

I wonder sarahjean, if it might be easier to post a list like this for each topic, to avoid confusion and help everyone in their direction? Coming up with topics off the top of your head can be a little intimidating for some.

And another question: Will we be doing photo eye play during the poetry recite?

That's a good idea, Annisis. Not many people have really signed up for topics... Since you seem to be really keen to get things going (as am I), is there some way we can chat online to work out details like this? Perhaps if you have Skype, MSN, etc. you could PM me with yourcontact and we could do some brainstorming there?

I've been following this thread and would like to get involved. I have a 26 month old and we've been doing LR for about a year now. I haven't been as diligent as I use to be with her, but I would like to get back on the wagon.

My trouble is coming up with the topic info. I have a Mac, so I'm really good with iMovie. But I get brain freeze when it comes to subject matter, not knowing where to start. I'd be willing to put things together if I could get some help with content. Let me know your thoughts or if you have any suggestions for how to decide what to show. Is there a formula to follow?

omimama,

There is a bit of a formula, as you can see in the rest of the thread, but annisis and I will get together this weekend to make it even more detailed and easy for people to follow. If you'd like, I can ever choose a set of topics for you. I just wanted to give people the chance to volunteer for topics that would be easiest for them to do.

I'm so glad to have you involved!

Just  wondering if anyone else is still working on this? Haven't heard anything, so I am wondering if I am the only one still working on this.

Hi!

Sorry for the delay - I just got back from having a baby! We are in the process of simplifying for those who were overwhelmed and will be back with more details within the week!

Yes, we're still working. In addition to sarahjean's new little one, my whole family has been sick all week. confused  So, it's been a little crazy all around. We hope to have it all going soon. Give us another week or so and we should be in full motion!

And congrats sarahjean! Bet you're exhausted!  big grin
