Hey, I'm not above a little begging. With the hope that I will have ipods to use, my big project has been using Garage Band to create podcasts of me reading some books that I may want to use in centers. I simply record myself reading a book and then go back in and add my sound effects.
I love the idea of creating my own because I can choose any book to use, add sound effects and background music and I could even record an extension activity that a student would have to complete after listening to the story. Today I'm sharing with you my first book podcast, The Pout Pout Fish.
I first read this book back in college and had to buy two of each in the series when I saw they were only $5 as part of the Kohls Cares for Kids merchandise.
Click on the purple podcast button above to download and listen to my reading. Hopefully you'll be able to use it yourself in your classroom listening center!
If you're a teacher, how do you set up listening stations in your room?
