It's not that I don't want to link up with Tried it Tuesday most weeks, it's just that after teaching all day and coaching Quiz Bowl after school, I lose my brain. There's just nothing left for me to give.
But today? Well, today was our fourth snow day. Yup. Now we get to add them on to the end of the year. But I have brain power left! And so I get to link up!
It's called Telagami. Sorry. No pictures. But, you can download it on iPads or use it on laptops. Basically students (or you - there's been WAY too much fun happening between my husband and our daughters!) Anyway, you create a character, complete with hair and eye color, clothing, mood, and background. Then you record your message. Easy to do! I want some of my students to record themselves reading, because as you know, I'm about to start CAFE.
If we ever have school.
Some of my kiddos need to work on fluency and some need to listen to themselves, just to hear how they sound. I'm hoping it will help them become a little more aware of their reading strengths and weaknesses.
Have you ever used it? Are there other apps out there like that? Do tell!
