Bonanza is always an awesome school to visit. In the morning we had a great discussion about using social media in the classroom and Mrs. Evans set up her Grade 1/2 Moodle Page. The afternoon was an AISI Literacy Meeting that I sat in on.
One of the areas of focus, as I understand it, is listening to reading. As we were sitting disussing how the year was going, the comment was that it was difficult to find audio books. This is where I have ideas!
Listening to Reading!
1) Free Websites to download audiobooks
Lit2Go each book as a MP3, text of web and a downloadable Mp3
***Once download you could burn them to CD or load them on an iPod for listening
2) Create your own audiobooks
Download Audacity, from home just follow the link to install but at school you can either submit a helpdesk request (as this is support software) or install it yourself from Control Panel and Run Advertized Programs
