ShowMe Showcase ~ Reading

The following post was cross-posted on my classroom blog. I wrote it to highlight how we use the ShowMe app in our classroom. The original audience is parents. I thought I would share it here, too.

ShowMe Showcase
For today's post, I thought I would share a few of the more recent ShowMes that some students have created. The ShowMes in this post will be all about books and reading. Students have been taking pictures of their favorite books or pages in their book and then recording their voice telling why they enjoyed this book. I love this type of ShowMe. I can see what books the crew is enjoying and I can listen to them talk about their favorite parts or summarize the story. I can learn so much about what a child knows about reading from watching these. I can also see that they have been watching the older crews very closely as they share "Good Reads" during our All School Meetings - our crew is using the same language that they use. These are also posted on each student's individual Kidblog if you would like to leave them a comment. Enjoy! (If you get this post by email, you will need to go directly to the blog to view the ShowMes.)

Reese shares her favorite book in the Magic Tree House series. Cutter also shares about a book from the Magic Tree House series. Jonathan shares his favorite part in an Elephant and Piggie book. Phoebe tells us a little about her favorite Henry and Mudge book. Matt tells us all about his favorite book in the Cork and Fuzz series. Sophia shares a book from the Boxcar Children series. Van also shares his favorite Henry and Mudge book.
