Talk Bar Giveaway

Recently Learning Resources sent me a Talk Bar to use in my classroom and I really like it. My favorite way to use it is for story sequencing. Melonheadz Illustrating has great clipart for tons of stories. I printed and adhered the clipart pictures to the blank Talk Bar cards. Then I recorded a sentence to go with each one on the Talk Bar. This was very easy to do. I had students retell the story and sequence the cards in the order they happened. When they placed the cards into the Talk Bar frames, they were able to play the sentences that I had recorded to go with the pictures. This makes it easy to place the Talk Bar in a literacy station or give to a child for working on independently. It offers a way for them to self check. I also used it in whole group.

Another way to use the Talk Bar is to write math facts on the blank cards and record the answers. Students can use manipulatives to solve the math problem. Then place the card in the frame and listen to the answer to check themselves.

Learning Resources has given me a Talk Bar to giveaway to one lucky blog follower. To enter:

1) Like Learning Resources on Facebook
2) Follow Learning Resources on Twitter
3) Follow the Learning Resources Pinterest Board
4) Follow Chalk Talk

You can leave one comment for all 4 requirements or a separate comment for each requirement you fulfill. Don't forget to leave your name and email in your comment. The giveaway ends Sunday February 24th at midnight. Good luck!
