'O le pepe

We sing a lot in my class. A class favourite at the moment is a Samoan song 'O le pepe, a song about a butterfly! Interest in butterflies grew so I selected an art project to give the students a way of creating their learning. The finished "butterfly wall" in our corridor looked great!

I thought it would be nice for the kids to share their art and wrote a short story so we could make a movie. When sharing the story with my team leader she observed: You need to write picture books!

While filming it became evident that my students were unable to translate the Samoan words into English so we added a translation to the movie.
'O le pepe was a success and played on our School TV, several times at the Manaiakalani Film Festival 2011 and has been re-posted multiple times on the internet.
