We’ve been using our awesome Easi-Speak Microphone in our classrooms.
It has been so much fun! Listen in on some of our students as they practiced their reading fluency, spelling words, and math facts.

Their favorite part was being able to listen to it right away from the built in speakers. We also imported these recordings using the built-in USB, into Audacity to practice editing the audio files and using them in other applications like Photo Story 3 and Windows Movie Maker.
We are so thankful that Learning Resources has given us this helpful technology! It’s been easy to put it to good use in our regular classroom settings, even for our not-so-tech-savvy teachers. It’s a valuable addition to our daily activities.
We are so thankful!

Kindergarteners know how important it is to learn what their letters look like and the sounds they make. So, we thought we should practice our early reading skills in the lab too. Since we are Techie Kids, we thought we’d try to use technology to support our learning and have some fun along the way. More >

Well, you may have noticed that something looks different around here. Last week, the Techie Kids visited our blog buddies, Mr. Avery and Mrs. Watson’s, class blogs.
