HearALL Giveaway!

THIS CONTEST HAS CLOSED!
Learning Resources sent me a HearALL Assessment Recorder to try out in my room. I can sum this handy little device up in three words.

I.  LOVE.  IT.
(Click on the pic above to go to the Learning Resources webpage.)

I turned it on while my kids were reviewing in small groups for our big TCAP test. They were playing games and one group was getting a little off track. I put the recorder beside the table, hit the button, and let it run for a few minutes after I walked away. I came back in a few minutes, turned it off, and played back the group's conversation.

Let's just say it wasn't on topic.

Silence. Furtive looks around the table.

We talked about the goals of the game they were playing and appropriate comments. Then I started the HearALL back up and walked away.

When we replayed the recording a little later, everyone was on topic! Imagine that.

We have also used it to record our fresh reads for fluency practice. The kids are getting a little bored with fresh reads by this time of year, so using the HearALL and playing the recordings back made it all new again.

The possibilities for this are endless....playing samples for parents at conferences, recording the directions to learning stations, listening center activities...
It's so easy to use that the kids can handle it themselves.

The best part of all this? Learning Resources offered one of these for me to use as a giveaway for my followers! And since I just reached 500 followers, the timing is perfect! We can all celebrate!

So if you want a chance to win this amazing little device, you have several ways to do so. If you are a follower of my blog already, leave me a comment below by midnight, Monday, April 30. If you aren't a follower yet, please consider joining my readers now. You'll want to keep in touch, because Learning Resources has given me a Luna document camera to give away, too! Aren't they wonderful?
