Remember to work on your Science Fair projects. The projects are due Monday February 4. The Science Fair is on Thursday, February 7. Remember to take pictures and or videos as your child works through the project! Your child needs to record his or her thoughts about the project and provide a QR code which gives the link to your pictures with audio or video/audio so all can hear your child discussing the project. Make your QR code from this website:

Here is Reese Haag’s project from when she was in first grade to give you an idea of how this works for first grade. She used YouTube. Note parent coaching is totally fine!

Here is another project using the website Little Bird Tales from Eleanor Rolf. On Little Bird Tales you can upload photos, type in information, and record your voice in individual slides. I will be showing the first-grade students how to use this site next week!

You can also use google slides to upload pictures and then use a separate app to record your voice.

It’s great when you can show your project in action! Three years ago, one of the middle school students made his own hover board and part of his video presentation was showing how he was able to ride the hover board right here in our own parking lot!

God’s Blessings,
