March is Reading Month: Create your own video/audio book library!

In honor of reading month, I recorded this short video of one of my favorite books to share with you all and your students.

If you would like to create your own video book library, like this video, here's how to get started.
Step 1: Pick out your book
Step 2: Get out your chromebook or PC with a Webcam attached
Step 3: Open a video recorder.  There are lots out there, but I used: The Video Recorder from 123apps.com
Step 4: Record your video.
Step 5: Watch it and rerecord if necessary.
Step 6: Save and/or download the video.
Step 7: Upload to a Google Drive folder that is shared with your students so they can all view the videos.
Step 8: ENJOY!

Classroom ideas...

  • Create a school-wide collection
  • Have older students record themselves reading books for younger students
  • Have family members record books for the classes
  • Too shy to be on video?  Just use the Voice Recorder instead.
