Audacity

Using the Audacity software, I recorded a Reading A-Z story that students can listen to. The recording not only demonstrates fluent and expressive reading, but also includes fun sound effects provided by findsounds.com. This is a great, creative idea for not only teachers, but for students. Students could select a Reading A-Z book of their choice, at their instructional level, and record their reading. They could insert sounds. More importantly, the teacher would have concrete evidence of students' fluency and expression while reading.
