Attendees will be able to implement Seesaw, FlipGrid, and Epic! in their classrooms, allowing students to self monitor their reading fluency.
Seesaw will allow students to take a picture of their reading passage, record themselves reading the passage and allow parents, teachers, and classmates to respond based on a rubric.
Epic! will allow students to find passages to read, listen to them being read by an actual voice to hear the speed, accuracy, and expression of the story before they can record themselves reading the same thing.
FlipGrid allows students to record themselves reading and allow others to comment back and a teacher to grade their fluency based on a rubric.
Speed, Accuracy, Expression, Oh My!
