Giveaway Time!!!

I'm so very excited to present a wonderful giveaway today!! 
The HearALL Assessment Recorder!! 
I know you have seen these giveaways popping up around blog land. I was so excited when Learning Resources contacted me about reviewing this product. I get to provide yet another reader with the HearALL Assessment Recorder! This awesome recorder is worth $100 buckaroos girlfriends!! So, get in on the fun!!

I've been using this handy little gadget in my classroom for well over a month now and my students and I LOVE it! What do I love about it you ask??

  • It's light weight and easy to use! 
  • The sound is very clear and high quality.
  • It allows me to be in two places at once.
  • The reluctant/shy students are motivated to read aloud to it.  
  • The kids are under it's charm and stay focused when reading to it. 
  • It doesn't need batteries.
  • You can play back recordings on the spot, save for later, send to a parent via email, upload recording to your blog, etc... (So much potential!!)
  • Wonderful way to practice fluency! They can buddy read in a fun voice (cowboy/robot/alien/etc.) then play it back and listen to themselves. Super fun!! 
Here is the HearALL in action in my classroom!

Thanks super duper

I would use this tool during our Daily 5 rounds. Students could record themselves and then listen. This would help improve fluency and prosody.

Alicia@Through-my-is said...

I would use it for my students to improve speech and also for them to practice literacy skills (I teach preschoolers). I really want this because I think it is the perfect option for a child such as my son who has selective mutism disorder

danae said...

I coud use this in my fluency station, during Running Records, or in science class during experiments.

I would love to use this to check fluency and monitor progress that students are making.

Katy said...

We're just starting to use DRA at the private school where I teach, so I'd love to use the assessment recorder to help me work through those.

TeacherJ said...

This looks awesome. I would love to be able to use this in my classroom next year. I would like to set up a schedule for a few readers per day to use it. That way I could individually hear them read aloud a longer passage every week.

Melissa said...

I would have students use this to check their fluency. I think it is a great tool for students to use with so many possibilities.

Ms. Kidd said...

This sounds like something that I could really use in my classroom. Thanks for sharing :)

a find said...

This would be fantastic for DRAs as well as daily use during work stations.

Stacy said...

I teach K-6 reading intervention, and so many of my students struggle with fluency and comprehension. I think this would be so wonderful to have for my students to use for self-assessment! I love that it can be used for all age groups, and that you can e-mail the recordings to parents!

Corinna said...

I would use it for Assessments (DIBELS), fluency practice, Listening centers(record themselves reading favorite books)Parent conferences...so many ways to use it:))

Aloha,

I would use the hearALL Assessment Recorder for fluency assessment. It would be telling to teach students what I listen for and have them "score" their own reading, as well as set goals for improvement. I also love the options for recording assessments to share with grade level team meetings, administration, student study team meetings or parents too. Nice easy artifact gathering tool!

gin said...

I'm a new follower!

gin said...

I would use this to record myself reading, to record students reading and to spy on others by hiding it...totally kidding about the last part...I want to win SOO bad!

alesia spangler said...

I am going to be doing lots of the assessment for our upper grades and part of it will require me to count their responses to the reading passage. I like this both for recording their reading, and the retelling and comprehension part. When I am not using it for the assessment part, then the students will LOVE getting to record their own voice reading - so fun!!!

Teacher Gone Digital said...

I would love to have this for fluency assessments in my classroom!

Suzy Q said...

We do a lot of choral reading, so this would be perfect for the students to listen to their group.

Sue said...

I know how fab these things are - I used my Easispeaks a lot in my previous school. I would use it to record my ESL children and play back to them - nothing better than hearing what's great, and those little areas where you need to improve

Ms Sidra said...

I would use this handy dandy tool in my Writing center and have my students read their paragraphs aloud and then listen to them.

Ms. Ferretti said...

I don't even know where to start because there are so many ways to use it. I could give directions for centers, use it to recored reading for the students and myself. Center work answers could be dictated in to the HEAR ALL. Some students could do their writing by recording their rough draft first before publicatiion. There are so many ways I could use this. Thanks for the chance to use it. kferretti@peachtreeacademy.com

I think this would be an awesome tool to use in many ways in our classroom. I could use it for feedback and for my young readers to critique themselves in Guided Reading. Or it could be my extra set of ears in workshops while I'm in small groups.

I had a very shy student last year and this would have been an awesome resource. I can think of at least a dozen uses. I'm going to see if there is room in the budget for this useful gadget.
