I love getting to check out all the latest goodies from Learning Resources and this next product is no exception. The ‘talk links’ aren’t just a recording system. They are a way for you to link small recordings together and have them played back connected with a single button.
So if it’s not clear what I mean. Here is a way I used them in my classroom. On each of the links (they kind of look like puzzle pieces) I wrote one word from a five word sentence. I then mixed the word pieces up.
My kinders then made an attempt to put the pieces together in the correct order so that the sentence made sense. When they thought they had the sentence correct, they pressed the first green button to listen to the sentence that they connected being read.
They could tell by listening to the sentence whether it made sense or not.
It was so fun for them, I showed them how to do it for each other. The buttons are really easy to use and manipulate so it wasn’t difficult at all.
They had a blast with it. I can really see this product being used for onsets and rhyme manipulation, CVC word production and sequencing activities. They are versatile with math activities.
So what’s wrong with them? What would I change? My only wish for this product is that I had about 5 sets of these amazing links. There are 6 links in a box, but I would really LOVE LOVE LOVE to get my hands on about 30. It would really allow me to differentiate and extend learning even farther, but then, I don’t want to sound too greedy.
The people at Learning Resources are always to gracious and kind to let me try out their great products and they even allow me to offer one for you guys to win.
So here it is, another great giveaway and super easy entries.
