Kindergarten Graduation

Here is the Kindergarten Graduation video slideshow I created using animoto.com.  This is my second year doing a video slideshow for graduation.  I really like how it turned out this year!  I added video clips of the students saying what they liked about kindergarten.  Their voices are a little quiet on some, so I added text before each clip so everyone will know what they are saying.  It was a hit at graduation on Tuesday!  


This was my last graduation as I am moving to a new district in the fall and will be teaching 2nd grade.  I am filled with so many emotions right now...happy, sad, excited, and nervous!  


If you have never created a video with animoto, you definitely should try it out!

Flag Day

Flag Day is June 14th.  To get ready to celebrate we begin by creating our own flags!  This is a one of my favorite projects we do each year.  

I give each student a piece of red, white or blue paper to start.  I then have squares, strips of paper and stars (small, medium, and large) at each table in red, white, and blue for them to create a flag!  Here are a few photos of the students creating the flags.
