Entry Ten: Vocaroo

Vocaroo is a free, simple tool to use for students to record their writing. There are so many reasons to use this tool in your classroom. Here's the top three reasons to use Vocaroo in your classroom:

1. Use this with students who struggle with conventions. We have found that students who struggle spelling every word and forget punctuation can display different strengths as a writer through using this tool.
2. Use with students who write LONG stories. It is much quicker than asking students to type or rewrite their stories to publish.
3. Share the links online as part of a digital portfolio to share with parents, grandparents, and penpals.
