iPad reading video activity for summarizing.
Easily integrate iPads into your reading workshop, literacy centers, whole group or guided reading plans with this low-prep and creative activity. Students will use the included planning and direction sheets to create an animated "talking" book cover summary video using the free app TACU (stands for Talking Cutie). TACU allows students to record for up to a minute - the perfect time for a short summary!
Packet includes everything your students need to complete the project using the app independently:
★ 3 Visual step-by-step student direction pages for using the free app TACU.
★ 3 differentiated summarizing graphic organizers to choose from - or use all 3 for variation when revisiting this strategy throughout the year.
★ 1 Summarizing Anchor Chart to display or add to reader’s notebook.
★ 1 Recording sign for students to display when making their video.
★ 1 Rubric to assess student work.
You will need the free app TACU. A QR code to download the app from the iTunes store is included in this packet.
Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
