This Month's Question....
What Is Your Most Memorable Halloween Costume?
This video was 100% created by our Student Reporters Julia and Alexandra. They "Appsmashed" two Apps together by having teachers record themselves in an app called Flipgrid and then imported those clips into WeVideo to create this finished video.
Mrs. Hoffman and Mrs. Meckes will use this new section of THE HILL to highlight our after school programs, community partners, and services they provide for our students and families.

In this section of THE HILL, Mr. Drey and Mr. Dicicco will feature the awesome ways FHE students are learning, creating, and collaborating with the help of Technology.
Vocab + Video = Awesome!
To practice our 8 vocabulary words for the week, we asked students to create a video using WeVideo that would incorporate the words in context. Using WeVideo's text overlay animations, music, transitions, and stock footage, students interacted with each word by creating a scene using their meaning in context. We only learned the basics of WeVideo from Mr. Dicicco the week before and the students were already doing amazing things with it! Soooo much better than a worksheet!
Please check out Julia's awesome video below! (Can you guess what the 8 Vocabulary words were???)
