This past week the students wrote non fiction paragraphs on penguins. We then used an iPad app called Book Creator. The students were able to record themselves reading their paragraph and then I took a photograph of them and their finished piece of writing. This was a great way for the students to hear how fluent they are in their reading. We will be working on fluency using the iPads in the next week. Students will record themselves reading a "just right book" and will play it back for themselves to hear it and to critique themselves on fluency and intonation.
