TODD’S TECH TUESDAY: First-grade audiobook authors

June 7, 2011

Our post today is from Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano at Langwitches. This techy teacher has so many great ideas for students across grade levels and ages and lots of videos and visuals to help all of us understand her lessons. Our featured post is about making first-grade audiobooks. We know that students use audiobooks in listening centers but how often have you been in a classroom where the students created the book?

If you read her description of the lesson, you can imagine how helpful such a task would be for working on reading fluency (meaningful repeated readings to “get it right”) and on communication and expression, in general. The whole class could get in on this one with some students writing material and others specializing in the dramatic reading or the technology management.

I also love the idea of using peers to create adapted textbooks and literature for classmates needing alternatives to written material.
