I just HAD to share my Katie Bug's Yearbook Cover entry for her school. I think it is so adorable!!
I know if I were the judge, she would win FOR SURE!! Don't you all agree?? :)
Here's an idea for your Spring bulletin board-we made butterflies last week and flowers today from my Rainforest Fun Art and Writing Pack, and these 2 projects are doubling for my April board, since my Open House isn't until June 7th. Yup, you heard me right, peeps! June 7th!! Most of you will be all tan and relaxed enjoying your summer, while I will be all frazzled and neck deep in Open House madness!! Sigh...
Anyway, here it is all put up!
Next week, we will be diving into the making all of the animals in the rainforest, and after that, it's Rainforest Madness until June 7th, baby!
Now, on to the extra-exciting part of this post, my Learning Resources Hear-All Assessment Recorder review!
I was soooo excited when Learning Resources contacted me and asked me to review this AWESOME product. I had NOTHING to record my kids' reading with, and when their generous offer came, I knew this would be PERFECT for my class!
I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and it is AMAZING!! My kidlets are sooo excited every time they see me take it out, and they ALL want to be recorded while they read. Here are some of the ways I have put it to use in my classroom...
|During Accelerated Reader, while I listen to a student read her AR book. I can email her recording to her mom!|
|During partner reading of our Houghton-Mifflin story. I was helping my low babies read, so I let the Assessment recorder monitor how the other groups were partner reading!|
|During small reading groups. After my students read with each other, they got to listen to their recording! They LOVED it!!|
|During my Henry and Mudge Book Club with a small group. They each took turns reading a page and then we listened to it together. THey were AMAZED! And, a little embarassed! :)|
This little device is small, compact, and records REALLY well. The voices are clear when I play it back and it is SUPER simple to use! I just plug it into my computer and I can save the files to email to my parents! I think the best thing about the HEAR-ALL Assessment Recorder from Learning Resources is how motivated the kids are to use it, and the fact that it can be my ears even when I am not right there!
