Mrs. Barnett's First Grade Class: Read to Self on the iPads - Scholastic Books

Mrs. Barnett's First Grade Class: Read to Self on the iPads - Scholastic Books | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
One way we use our iPads during Daily Five time is to Listen to Reading. We do this with a variety of apps, but I love trying to also use the "native" apps and what I already have in my classroom. Combine old CD's from Scholastic with books read aloud on them with the music app and you have a 2.0 version of a listening center!

Like many teachers, I had stacks of CD's that we no longer used because of our iPads. In fact, I am not sure that all of my students would even know how to use a CD player! I held on to the CD's because they had great audio of books being read aloud on them. I thought and thought and finally figured out how to import them to my students iPads

Lee Hall's insight:

A great way to still use your old CD's of audio books.
