After reading the story, I Wanna New Room, to grade 2 and kindergarten I asked if anyone wanted to do a book talk on the book using the iRig microphone connected to the iTouch. Two girls from grade 2 volunteered and while students found books they did a book talk. I didn't help them. The girl in the video did it on her own three times and kept adding details with each practice. She also noticed that if she had the microphone too close to her mouth the sound wasn't clear. With each new attempt she improved on both those things. The other 2nd grader held the iTouch and would tell her to move the microphone down or hold up the book.
The next group was kindergarteners. They loved hamming it up using the microphone. While students looked for books about 6 girls decided to book talk on the book we read called, Zero. It is interesting seeing what kindergarteners remember about the book. I used Corel Studio and will put it on the LCD screen outside the library. The video buffers a lot and for the Internet so I redid it from a .wmv file to a .flv.
