This is my third year of implementing the Daily 5 Literacy Program in my classroom, in conjunction with the Literacy CAFE components. Throughout last year I experimented with ways of using the few iPads that my class had access to, in order to integrate technology into our literacy program.
I’ve composed a collection of apps/ideas for each of the Daily 5 sessions which may help you in your own classroom:
Read to Self:
Voice Record –ask students to record themselves speaking and play it back to help them identify areas to improve
Dragon Dictation –encourage students to read clearly with this speech-to-text app
