Each week scholars select 5 independent level books to take home for home reading practice...this is something we've always done. Scholars are expected to read every night for 20-30 minutes. On Tuesday nights they have an assignment to be completed on their iPad. Each Tuesday night scholars make a screencast of their reading. They choose their favorite book, take a photo of each page, upload the photos into Doodlecast and record their reading. The Doodlecast is saved to the camera roll on the iPad and then uploaded into a personalized folder in Dropbox.
Check out these reading screencasts.
