September Video Newsletter


Hi friends and families!

I started replacing traditional paper newsletters with these video newsletters last year, and never looked back. I think there is a lot of power in having students report what we are up to, rather than having me type up classroom happenings in a newsletter. Before we record, we brainstorm ideas that we should report on and talk about our monthly learning objectives. At the end of the month, we will rewatch the video and check in to see if we accomplished our goals.

Everything was recorded on an iPad using the camera app. Next, we dumped the clips into iMovie to create the movie and add the text and background music. Then simply add it to your YouTube channel and list it as "unlisted" so anyone with the link can view it. From start to finish, it can all be done on the iPad! :)

Here is what's happening in The Doghouse in September! Monthly video newsletters will be posted right here. Remember, you can see what we are up to daily by following our classroom Instagram account @topdogkids and our Twitter account @tweetingtopdogs. Enjoy!

  6. Our class is in Year 6 (Australia) and we really enjoyed watching your Newsletter video! You have some great things going on in your school and we are a little jealous (actually a lot). You have an amazing playground (ours is broken!), you get to choose your own seating (we wish!) and have a large cafeteria. (We have a little tuckshop with a small selection of food). Good luck this year from all of us 'cool cats' in The Cureton Crew.
