5th Grade Music Video Project

Fifth graders at West have been busy making music videos here at West!  We are using iPads and the apps Videostar and Recording Lite to make the videos.  Many of the students are familiar with Videostar, an app in which you can film yourself, using all sorts of filters, lip-syncing to your favorite songs on the radio.  We have taken it a few steps further though!  Each group was able to pick a school appropriate pop song, change the lyrics to the song, learn to sing their “new version” of the song, and then record themselves singing the song using the app Recording Lite and instrumental tracks that are easily found on youtube!  Recording Lite was necessary, because unlike other recording apps, anything you record in Recording Lite can be opened in Videostar.  Some student work will be uploaded soon!

Project Directions look like this:
