Record A Story Books

I was at Books-A-Million the other day and they had their "Record A Story" Christmas books on clearance. I picked one up with an idea for next holiday season to use in my classroom.

Starting after Thanksgiving break, I will send the book home with a different child each night. They will record themselves and family reading the story. They will then pass the book onto another family who will listen to the previous version and then record their own.

It's a great way to promote literacy at home and enhance parent involvement. I'm sure you have heard about this before but I had to share anyway. I'm always looking for new ways to encourage parents to stay active in their child's educational journey.

Oh I love that idea!!!!!!!

Hey, I got your email(s) - thank you SO much. I'm bringing hubby in this weekend to help me set up my Mimio board and have one of their representatives coming in next Thursday to show me how it works. So, once I get my feet wet I'm sure I'll have a TON of questions for you.

For now, though, it's sitting in a box in my classroom just waiting to be used. I CANNOT wait!!!!!
