Read A Book 2.5

Have you ever listened to a children’s book on tape? You follow along in your copy of the book while listening to a narrator read the book. When it is time to turn the page, there is a distinct sound, such as the ding of a bell, indicating it’s time.

Your project this week is to record yourself reading a book. You need to do your very best reading, because other students in the class are going to be listening to your recording.

On your iPad you have an app called Quickvoice. You will record yourself using this app.

Several points to keep in mind as you are reading:

  1. Practice before you start recording. If you make a mistake, you have to start all over, so practice any difficult words before you start.
  2. Slow Down. Do not read too fast. Think about how I read during Read Aloud; you can understand all the words.
  3. Remember to pause at commas and periods.
  4. Use expression. Do not read in a monotone voice–that’s boring!

The first thing you need to read is the title of the book, then the author, then the illustrator (this information is on the front of the book). As you turn each page, you will need to produce a sound so the reader knows it is time to turn the page.

Below is the list of books you may choose from. There are ten books and ten of you, which means no, you cannot work together. The hard copies of the books are located in the back by the Reading Group table.

Save your project as Your Name: Title (example: Miss Wright: The Paper Bag Princess) in the Read a Book folder.
