     Reader of the Week

     
     Each year, first grade participates 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.
