year, first grade is participating in a county wide program called “Loudoun
Creates”. This program encourages students to create media that educates their peers. Each week, our class will feature a “Reader of
the Week” and his or her creation. Each student creator will take photos using an iPad, record their own voice, select font types, and select background music for their video. The teacher will assist the student with putting all of the elements together using the iMovie app.
At this point in the year, every student in the class has a featured video below!
Please also check out our class videos as well.
