Practice counting aloud with a group of students. Demonstrate how to count and record your counting with Easi-Speak.
Give Easi-Speak to the group. Have students take turns counting up from 1 to 30 and back from 30 to 1 while recording their counting with Easi- Speak. Make sure each child records his or her name before starting to count.
Then have each student count from 1
to 100 and record his or her counting.
Use the recording as documentation and assessment for a student's portfolio. Consider whether the student is able to count up and back from 1 to 30 and count up from 1 to 100. Add the audio recording to students' digital portfolios and use it to track students' progress over time. Email the recording to parents and caregivers as communication or a quick snapshot of their child's progress.
To extend the activity, have students count as high as they can and record their responses.
