Welcome to Taryn's Page!
We have been practicing for Halloween by taking pictures and turning them into black and white and exporting them into the frame. These are the pictures we have taken as a practice.
Vivian, Lucinda, and I worked on this together and we picked a line form the poem and we decided on certain images to add to our photo that went with our line we chose. This was the final picture above.
PBIS M.O.V.E. with a purpose imovie
This movie I recorded was for the first have day and it shows behavior in the halls. Vivian, Rose, Lucinda, and Sofia were in the movie. We did good and bad versions for each hallway behavior.

When I first got the picture from Ruby, I really liked the silhouette of the deer and I wanted to add some more deer to be in the picture. I went on google images and found some more silhouette of deer that I liked and wanted to add to the picture. Once I found some, I dragged them one by one into photoshop and I used the magic wand to get the background of the google image out so I just had the silhouette. I then adjusted it to make it look like it was actually in the picture. I added in 3 different deer and one of them was looking in the distance like the original deer in the picture. Then I edited the background by using the hue and saturation effect and was able to turn the background to be the color blue and added this eerie effect to the scene.
The halloween pictures were a success. Things that I would do differently are assign certain jobs for certain people to make the process go more smoothly. The 8th grade lunch period was the most busiest so maybe we might need more people or a stronger line to make everything more organized. We could also have signs on the table for signing in and having to put down your information and paying so everything can go more smoothly.
Me, Vivian and Lucinda are working on a school tour for the Phoenix students but we are not finished yet. We are filming this tour and telling them a little about our school. We will probably start editing tomorrow but I don't think we will have the final project done till after Thanksgiving break.
The project I'm working on is organizing Ms. Kushner's office and desk. I have been working with Rose and we learned ow to use the new label maker to help us organize. Right now we are organizing the back shelves and making bins for Ms.Kushner to go through. We plan to have the organizing done by the start of winter break. To reach our goal, we have to work together and make goals for each day to motivate us.

To reach our goal, we have to work together and make goals for each day to motivate us. Our goal for this week is to finish the camera shelf and supplies shelf.
For the holidays, I wanted to make a Christmas gift for some family members. I used the laser cutter to cut out names of some of my family members and once they were cut out, I spray painted them to decorate them.
I am finishing up cleaning the office with Rose and we plan to finish it sometime next week. After that, I would like to make my own Stranger Things shirt and my own shirt that has my name on it. Lastly I would like to burn some songs on a CD for another project.
January 12- Class Project
When I think of home I think of a place where you feel, loved, safe, and you are surrounded by the people who you love.
February 2nd- Year book pages
This is what I have been working on for the past week. I am still making arrangements to it so this isn't the final one. I have been working with Charlotte. I am really excited and looking forward to working on the yearbook with her. At first I thought I wouldn't like working in the yearbook but now I really have fun putting these kinds of pictures together.
Gun Violence Video
I have been working on a Gun Violence imovie with Lucinda and Viv. We really wanted to show everyone in the school and teach them on how important it is to have stronger gun contol. First we developed a set of questions that we were going to ask to Chris Brown who knew someone who was killed by a gun and wanted to be in our video. Next we decided to ask a bunch of people to say 17 honoring the 17 people who were killed in the mass school shooting. So we recorded then dumped the footage into a video and put a song in the backround. Now we are ging to show Mr. Mac and ask if we can show it to the school.
