A Little Advice Video From Our 5th Graders At The End Of The Year

Today when the 5th graders came for their last day of library and technology time with me they were all excited and a tiny bit sentimental too.

They graduated two nights ago from elementary and will go upstairs to the secondary next year.  They are ready and will do an amazing job.

One of my 5th grade friends Colby came up to me and whispered in my ear,

"I have an idea.  Lets use the iPad stand and get a video using the Fuse app giving advice to the younger kids in our school."  

So we grabbed the video equipment and headed outside.  I just love what they produced.

And especially LOVE the message that they are going to leave our younger ones with tomorrow.
Van Meter 5th Graders....

You are awesome young people.....I can't wait to see where you will go from here.  Have a FUN summer and remember to keep on reading, creating, collaborating and being YOU.  

The "5th Grade End of the Year Advice" video can be viewed in Van Meter's EduVision Channel too. 


  1. This is a great idea. Other teachers should have students make a video like this at the end of the school year. Students are looking for new interactive activities at that time of the year: something different from the old routine.

    1. Hi Judy,

      Thank you...It was so fun to hear what they had to say. :) And love that it was all their idea too.

      Have a wonderful summer, Shan
