Intervention and HearALL Giveaway

I seriously need a school supply intervention...I get more excited about Wal-Mart putting school supplies out than I do about almost anything else!

Exhibit A:

The good news is I got all of this for less than $100 (and yes, there are over 100 notebooks and 150 folders!)
Close up: The confetti was on clearance and I'm going to use it for this

You can never have too many crayons or too much glue, right??
While we're talking about school supplies, I am so excited about getting to test this:

This is Learning Resources HearALL Assessment Recorder and I cannot wait to use it with my kiddos this year. You can read more about it here, but I am already thinking of a million ways I'm going to use this. When my kids leave my guided reading group every day, they have to go buddy read to 2 partners. Since I'm not where I can hear and make sure they are reading correctly (or for that matter reading the whole book), this is going to be a great tool to use. First, they will LOVE recording themselves and second, I can really see if they're applying what we learned in reading group. I also think it would be great for some of my kiddos who don't realize what they sound like when they read. You know the ones...I call them my little robots :). I can use this to record their reading group so they can really get an understanding of how they sound. I'm telling you - this is going to be great! Now for the good can win your very own! I'm so thankful to the super nice people at Learning Resources for giving me this opportunity to review their product and offering a free recorder for my followers. I'm trying Rafflecopter for the first time, so here goes:

    I've given you the One Lovely Blog award over in my latest post, come check it out! :)

  19. I've only seen these on blogs! It looks durable and easy for little hands to use. I think it could be used for those who need support in reading- like a tape recorder?

    Now, I so need to go to Walmart!! I didn't realize their school stuff is all out!

  20. I would use it to record the students reading. This way I could double check the running records and make recordings for the student's parent to listen to.


  21. I would use the recorder for running records and fluency. It would also be great for the children to hear themselves read!

  22. This would be fabulous for fluency practice! Thanks for the opportunity!

  33. I would use this when my students buddy read. I would also use it when students are practicing math facts, I could have one student flashing while the other student reads the problem and the answer. There are so many uses!!


  34. I think this recorder would be great to use as I begin Daily 5 this year. We could record our own reading for self-assessment or it could "listen in" for me on the independent reading stations. Thanks for the opportunity.
