Literably Is An Excellent Reading Site — If Used With Caution | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…

Literably Is An Excellent Reading Site — If Used With Caution | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | School Librarians Promoting Reading | Scoop.it

Literably "allows students to read a text and have it automatically assessed for accuracy and words-per-minute speed. Plus, and this is what was most surprising to me, it also provides a fairly accurate indentification of student errors — in other words, what word they said instead of the word in the text. You’re able to provide the student or parent a link to the recording. And it’s free."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 6, 2013 10:21 PM

Thanks for Larry Ferlazzo for sharing this website that allows teachers to choose reading and levels for students to read and saves their reading so you can come back and access it via a dashboard. You will need to register and set-up your student list.

Ferlazzo also discusses the cons of this. There is value in having one-on-one time with students when they read so you determine if they are "racing through words" or having other issues that may not be apparent through a recording.

None the less this may be a great tool for some of your students. Students do have the option of re-recording.

Ozge Karaoglu's Blog - Reading Log for Kids

Ozge Karaoglu's Blog - Reading Log for Kids | School Librarians Promoting Reading | Scoop.it

Reading Rewards is a tool to keep track of what and how much you are reading. You can find the books that you are reading from Amazon (like that you can create your online library) and add them in your reading log. Then, every day you write the minutes and the number of the pages that you have read. If you like, you can add your reviews and your rate with your comments on your log. You can create a wish list of the books that you would like to read too.
Also, as you read, you earn RR miles which you can spend by getting a Joke or Riddle of the day. Or, parents/teachers can add some rewards as well!
