How I Use It
I use this daily during center time. This is an independent activity. I assign a video of a book chat from me on another sight. They practice a book and then record it on Seesaw. I watch their practice daily and assign a new one. Their growth has been amazing. I have seen students grow 12 to 13 reading levels in my class.
My Take
This is user-friendly and allows my second graders to listen to themselves read as well as see how they read. It builds confidence in themselves. It also allows them to teach to whoever may be watching.
