A short film I created to help teach my students about what a friend is.
A new cartoon every Wednesday!
My name is Tony Dusko. I am a fifth grade teacher in Pennsylvania. For the past 9 years, I have also been making short animated educational films to liven up my everyday teaching. I keep these films on this Youtube channel called, notebookbabies. It all started when I animated this little grilled cheese sandwich character. (I studied art in college before becoming a teacher) The very simple cartoon told the kids to stop talking or they won't go to lunch. I still remember the expressions on their faces! And I still remember my disbelief of how very effective this was. We were never late to lunch again that year, and the kids begged me to make more. My little films now feature such topics as; friendship, diversity, rumors, perseverance, kindness, love, and bullying to name a few. Although some of them are purely for comedic value, as a good laugh can be helpful during a long math lesson.
