1st Graders Learn from Exchanging Paper Slide Videos

Mrs. Grimes and Mrs. Saunders' classes each did class research about Penguins and Sharks.  After creating their Paper Slide Videos, they exchanged videos for the other class to learn about the other animal.

Getting art class started

  Ms. Austen creates videos instructing the class on what they need to do to get class started.   This allows her class to self start while she is working to transition from one class to another.  

She has even left videos for teachers to show when they cover her classes. Not only are the videos full of instructions and directions so that everyone is prepared for their tasks -- they are fun, interesting and the kids respond to her on the video when she asked questions... even though they know she couldn't actually hear them.
