The first thing I did was pretend I was a Channel 7 Chicago news weather forecaster during calendar. The kids L.O.V.E.D this & made the usual
I always do a HUGE Dr. Seuss unit and group my students with their "Seuss Partners". After they practice reading it a few times I let them record each other with the Easi-Speak Microphone & then they listened to themselves. This handy little microphone is basically a wireless recorder. After demonstrating one time my students were able to independently record & listen. Three groups would "record" a day & then listen to themselves & make suggestions. This worked out great with my reluctant & most advanced readers.
For my summer project, I plan to record myself reading various popular children's books & download the MP3 files onto an ipod for my Daily 5 listening center. Audio books can be very costly & the kids LOVE when I read to them! I have more ideas below!
1. Speech therapy
4. Math facts
7. Post readings on classroom website or blog
8. Dramatic play
9. Read to Someone or Read to Self during Daily 5
