I worked with one reading group at a time. For the first time I let them pick any book they enjoyed reading, so we have a lot of Mo Willems. They practiced reading their book for a week.
Then I used my ipad and took their photo with the book.
Then I took a video of them reading the book on the ipad. I had them sit down in a chair and I tried to get as much of the book as
possible. I want the children who view the video to read along.
Next I downloaded the youtube app on my ipad for free.
Once I got the code I copied it and took it to ViewPure.com
Then I purified the video so the children will not have ads around it. Now I have a new link code. Again I copy the new code and take it to a qr generator.
I use QR Generator.com because it is FREE and it works great!
I created a code and printed out the code.
Then I put the code and picture on the file cabinets.
Now my students can go to the reading center with the ipads and scan the codes and read along.
In my classroom we use the scanner i-gnima on the ipads. Again it is free and kid friendly.
One theme you may notice with the sites and apps I use is that they are.....FREE. I don't know about you but I have an extremely limited budget of $250 at the private school I teach at. So I try to stretch my money the best I can. I appreciate companies who realize there are teachers who are trying to create fun learning activities with limited funds.
