Last year I had 15 minute literacy rotations in my classroom for a group of four LD students. I had a listening center with various books that I had recorded. One day, one of my students wanted to record a book that he had been reading for some time. I thought it would be good for him to record himself on his iPad. I thought that this would be a great thing and he would enjoy it. Unfortunately, after 3 tries he got upset and frustrated because he kept making errors while reading and he didn't like the sound of his voice on the recording. I tried to encourage him to record it again but he just got even more frustrated. This was so disheartening because I really thought he would like to record himself reading. This student had/ still has behavior problems which sometimes interferes with his work ethic. I might try it again because this was during October of last year and he has really matured over the past year. Do you think I should try it?

      What do you have them read and record? Cold reads or something they have read before?
