Yes, making the recorded readings was extremely easy. I recorded myself reading the book by using Garage Band on my iPad. When I messed up it was easy to record over myself. Rachel recommended saying "Stop" when I reached the bottom of every page which I think helped students follow along easier. I simply exported the file to dropbox and downloaded it as an mp3 file and added it to my iTunes. I now have a Fluency playlist on my phone/iPod ready for students to use. Rachel uploaded the recordings on her class website, so whichever works best for your classroom but either way is super easy!

      I found that it saves a whole class period. With a warm up/review of homework/agenda time, I usually only have time for one big thing, which would be a PowerPoint lecture review. Now I have a class... more

      My first graders learned the recording process quickly. I feel it is important for them to hear how they sound when reading. At first grade, they hear nothing wrong with their own reading, but... more

        This is a great technology tool! I use Garage Band to record students, and I have also recorded an example of quality work. Another even easier app if you want to just do recordings is called... more

        I'm glad you shared that information. I am having to split up one of my reading groups and was thinking of a way to tackle students reading instructional level text on their own. But I think this... more

          Susan, I have also used my Voice Memos on my phone, computer, iPad to record. Then I email it to myself and upload it to my website or I leave it on the iPad for them to get in class.

            What a great idea! I just might have to try that!

              i have also books recorded by our principal, other teachers, and people in our community (mayor, policeman, etc). I include a photo of the recorder with a short biography. The children really love... more

      I agree that taped readings are the most beneficial. It was really easy to get set up because all year I use my website, so students are really familiar with it. I just showed them the tab for their... more

        Wow juggling five groups sounds intense! I'm glad this has been working for you. I think I am going to use this with one of my reading groups I am going to have to split up! I like the idea of... more
