Hard copies and EE Activities
Today we had a productive and successful guided reading session. We used hard copies and activities that were pre-made and purpose built for the book being read. The children remained at the teaching table so the book activity could be explained and begun. Even though the learners have had some experience with cut up sentences on EE on their iPads it was noticed that they haven't been recording their learning. Today we focussed on getting the children to record themselves and listening to the playback. Rae Jae was amazing. He needed support the whole way through the re-build of his sentence. He was scaffolded with each move of a word. The sentence was repeated after completion. On playing back the recording Rae Jae spoke with the recording-pre-empting his own voice over with the correct text. UNFORTUNATELY, as I went to save his work he had already 'not' saved any changes!! I was able to capture Casshius and Atlanta.
