I have learned so much from blogland. Blogging has honestly and truthfully impacted my teaching (sounds like a cliche).
Okay-I thought long and hard about my giveaway. There are so many awesome sauce giveaways going on right now...inspiration hit while I was reading about the Daily 5 book study. I implemented Daily 5 two school years ago and love it.
One of the kids' most favourite activities is Listen to Reading. Listening centres, however, can be e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e BUT I found this little device on Pinterest and immediately decided it would be the answer to my Daily 5 prayers. I have many books on cd that I have transferred over to MP3 players. I have also enlisted my family to read poems into Audacity on my laptop and then put these on my MP3 players as well. The third way that I have built up my Listen to Reading centre is to buy 4 "cheap" (you know-the ones they put on for 1-2 dollars each) picture books from Scholastic each month. I then read the story into my handy dandy computer (Audacity program) and voila. I've managed to create a pretty good listening library at a relatively inexpensive cost to myself.
Problem=more than one kiddo listening to the MP3 player at once...solution=The Belkin.
The Belkin works with IPods (it is sold at the Apple store), MP3 players and cd players. It would probably even work with a computer. This little beauty allows up to 5 people to listen to one device at once!
It has received rave reviews and I do like to research this type of new agey thing ;) I don't own one YET but will be giving away one to a lucky winner!! Yes, that's right...the winner of my giveaway will receive the
