Did you know that Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin was born today in 1889?  He is better known as Charlie Chaplin, a very famous movie actor and filmmaker.  Charlie Chaplin wrote, directed, composed the music for, and acted in many of his films.  During his life, he worked on more than 80 films.  His earlier films were ‘silent’ films.

When movies were first made, they could record the moving picture, but there was no way to record the sound and have the sound match up when showing the movie.  Audiences needed to pay close attention to the expressions and gestures of the actors to know what was happening in the movie.  Charlie Chaplin’s character ‘the Tramp’ is one of the most recognized characters in film, silent or modern.

We hope that you have a charming day at school.  Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things.  We Love You.
