Bright Chevron & an AMAZING Giveaway!

Well, here it is... The Bright Chevron Classroom Kit- bright teal, green, pink, yellow & purple chevron backgrounds! Thanks so much for all the great comments & emails on my Bright Dots Classroom Kit & requests for a chevron-themed kit. I've just posted the Bright Chevron Classroom Kit in both Traditional Print and D'Nealian Print. Click the pics below to check it out!

I promise to post the Freebie Word Wall Words with the chevron background very soon!


Now, for this great giveaway from Learning Resources...Have you seen these handy lil things? The HearALL Assessment Recorder is very similar to the Easi-Speak Microphone except it just sits on the table & it can record several students at once. {Click here to read my post on the Easi-Speak Digital Microphone.} Here's the product description from Learning Resouces:

"Hear way beyond! Authentically assess students’ skills and participation in small groups. Designed with 4 omni-directional microphones to capture clear recordings with dramatically reduced background noise. Play back, download and share files (WAV or MP3) with specialists or parents, or upload to portfolios. Records up to 4 hours of audio from reading groups, learning centers, listening and speaking activities, speech therapy and more!"

I was super excited to be able to try this out during my small groups. It is compact and has 4 separate microphones so it really picks up the kiddos voices. I couldn't believe how clear the playback was. I love how I can play it back so the students can hear themselves. After hearing themselves read on the Hear All, they really paid close attention on the next reading! One kiddo said, "I have to be a super reader now because this thing could make me a star!" What a hoot! Hollywood get ready, here she comes!! I feel like I'm not missing any of the students reading. I can focus on one student while it records the others. {Also, very good at keeping those students focused because they know they are being recorded!} Not only is this useful during guided reading groups, but also is very useful at centers and during partner reading to moniter participation & verbal interactions. Oh my! Almost forgot to tell a BIGGIE....NO BATTERIES folks! Now that is a huge plus! Just connect this handy lil thing to your computer & it charges up! You're good to go for 4 hours!

I am looking forward to having my reading groups record various stories that they will be able to listen to later in our listening center. How excited will they be to hear themselves reading the story!!!
SORRY...THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED.
Now for the part you've all been waiting for...How can you win one of these super products for your classroom??? Well, it's super easy...Just leave a lil comment saying that you do the following:


That's 6 chances to win! Be sure to include your email address on each entry. Contest ends Thursday, June 28th-winner will be announced on Friday! Good luck!!! Sorry, contest has ended.
