I'm glad we've sparked an interest in the flipped classroom. Rachel introduced the flipped classroom concept to me and I definitely think that it can be done in the elementary school. I don't have experience in the lower grades so I can't speak for those, but I do believe the flipped classroom would be great for grades 3-5. The only issues I think Rachel has come across in regards to the flipped classroom is giving her students who don't have access to a computer at home time during class to watch the flipped lesson hence their shortness in time.
For students who try and read books above their reading level, at the ASU Reading Clinic we encourage students to pick a book that could help build their reading muscles, instead of a book that would make our reading muscles tired. Sometimes we let them try and read the first page aloud and then we have the student count their mistakes. If they make more than 5 mistakes we try to find them a different book on their level but on the same topic as the book they originally picked.

        i think I might give it a try but make it optional. This might also give parents a better picture of what is being taught in the classroom.

          I also put review videos up before test, etc. and my students really like it. So I think it would be really go for them. There are videos already for verbs/nouns that kinda thing.

            i really like the idea of posting review videos. I could post them on my class website.
