Giveaway # 3 Spring Break Countdown

2 days down. 3 to go.
Today's giveaway is for an Easi-Speak USB Recorder from Learning Resources.
The microphone design had my students clamoring for their turn to use it!

What I like about this product:
1. Wireless
2. Doesn't require batteries.
3. Easy one button recording.
4. USB built right into the bottom!
5. Instant playback so students can listen to their recording.

Here is an idea I had for how to use this in my room:

My kiddos LOVE to write during Daily 5 and their books are added to our class library. Other students may put them in their book box to read and they are very popular. I think giving young authors equal billing with "real" authors is important. I've recently allowed them to collaborate on books and they are so motivated they ask to work on books whenever there is ANY free time!
I let the author(s) read their book during our sharing time at the end of each round of Daily 5. The problem is there are usually too many authors and some students are disappointed when we run out of time to share everyone's writing.

I just had my DonorsChoose project funded for mp3 players for our listening center. Yipee!
I had a brainstorm to combine these two new techno gadgets!



My students use the Easy-Speak to record themselves reading the book they wrote.
These two collaborated on the book so they decided to take turn reading the pages.
Then I add the mp3 to our audiobook files so their friends can listen to their book!
What better way for students to practice fluency than by reading for the audience they care most about: their peers!

This year, my class loves to write their own versions of books we have read together. This one is based on My Name is Not Isabella. We had the author visit which is an amazing gift for young writers.
 No, David sparked a flurry of No, _____ books. This one has ME as the main character!
You can learn more about Learning Resources wonderful products by viewing them on YouTube.

Three ways to enter to win an Easi-Speak for yourself:
1. Follow this blog AND my TpT store or if you already do, I'd love it if you'd go rate one of my items.
2. Like Learning Resources facebook page.
3. Bonus: Spread the word about my Spring Break 5 days=5 Giveaways on your blog, facebook , twitter or Pinterest!

Click {here} for Day 1 or {here} for Day 2 if you missed my other Spring Break Giveaways!
I will pick the winners for all 5 giveaways on Sunday, the 8th!
