CoUnTdoWn and Giveaway...closed

Drum roll.... #23... Amelia... you are the winner!!!
Thanks for playing with me everyone!!
T.G.I.F.

Who said a teacher can't be in 2 places at once!!
This little blue tool allows you to do just that and so much more.
Learning Resources has thought of everything... this particiular goodie is called HearALL Assessment Recorder.  It is durable, easy to assemble and very entertaining. 
It is basically a lightweight portable recorder that is small, compact and requires NO batteries!!!  wAHOO!.  It charges by USB to your computer and doesn't require software to be installed. It has microphones on all four corners and a built in speaker in the middle, allowing you to capture sounds fantastically.  It was fabulous in groups because everyone's response could be heard clearly.
I've also used it with parent volunteers... during reading assessments.  After recording my kiddos I was able to take the device home and listen for myself.
The kids enjoyed  listening to various faculty members read some of our favorite pictures books and of course they LOVED recording themselves and playing it back.
I plan on picking up a couple more this summer for next years reading time.
It's a great deal and device for any classroom at $99.99!

But, tonight I have one to GIVE away... yep, for free.  Trying to keep my teacher friends happy for the final few days.  Just leave me a comment and follow my blog.
Be sure to follow Learning Resources on facebook and twitter.
We'll have a drawing Friday the 25th ;)
