First Day Jitters Close Read

I recently found another site to create close read video lessons.  It is called:Weo.  Lessons can be created and then shared with your students in a virtual classroom.  It is similar to Google Classroom.  Weo offers an added tool.  It will grade the student work for you and transfers it to an excel spreadsheet or an online gradebook.  It also has a discussion section for comments.  Here is the link to an activity that I made for Image result for first day jitters close read questionsFirst Day Jitters.
Another great feature is the Weo Connect.  It works like Pinterest.  You follow the teachers that are also creating on Weo and you can pin lessons to your own Weo board.  Then you can assign them to your classroom.

Chrysanthemum Close Read

Image result for chrysanthemum  book

I recently went to the Zaption site where I create my close read videos.  They will be shutting down as of September.  So I found a new FREE site to create them.  It is called: VIZIA.  It does not offer everything that Zaption does but it will do for now.  If you know a better site please comment.

So here is my latest close read: Chrysanthemum  I love to read this at the beginning of the year to discuss feelings with my kiddos.  I just put the link in google classroom and they can do it during reading center rotations.  The best part is that the site will automatically send you student results to an excel or google spreadsheet.
