This week my third graders have improved their comprehension during read aloud and reading mini lessons by using TodaysMeet!
This website has many uses, but I have been using it for a backchannel while reading aloud. The backchannel is the conversation that goes on alongside the primary activity, presentation, or discussion. This allows for students to show their thinking while I am reading, and it does not interrupt the flow of the reading or the lesson!
This is a snapshot of one of our conversations this week while reading "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe."
To set up a room, go to www.todaysmeet.com.
www.tizmos.com classroom page! This way the students can get to the room quickly.
I am planning on using TodaysMeet for other lessons, but for the past month it has been an amazing tool to increase reading comprehension.
