Super readers have Super Powers! First graders in Ms. Guthrie's class honed their Reading Super Powers in class today. Using Reading Street's leveled readers, iFiles, and the Explain Everything app, students practiced pacing, self-correction, using context clues, decoding skills, and reading with expression. To do this, students opened a PDF version of a leveled reader in Explain Everything and used the pointer tool (there are several options including a Light Saber!) to track what they were reading (see student directions). Students were able to record and listen to themselves reading. They could then apply their Reading Super Powers to become more fluent readers. Ms. Guthrie can now listen with her students to set individual goals, students can work in partners to review each other's reading powers and students can load the book a second time to re-record so they can hear their super reading powers improve! Go Super Readers!
