Paper Slide Videos
FETC takes place each year in Orlando and it is the BEST technology show. I was lucky enough to attend some sessions yesterday. I was so excited to get back into the classroom and try out some new things with the kids. I attended a session on video making in the classroom. We learned about paper slide videos and I showed the class a few examples from some 2nd graders. Of course I just knew my firsties could do it! Our reading theme this week was birds and we learned so much. What better way to showcase our learning than with technology. We wrote what we learned about penguins, created backgrounds, and some even made puppets to use in the video. We used a flipvideo camera to video and here they are!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
