Easi Speak Microphone Review & GIVEAWAY!

The wonderful folks at Learning Resources recently sent me a box:

We've been using the Easi Speak voice recorder this week and, let me tell you... it IS super easy!

We've also been working on persuasive writing, so my students have written some pieces to try and persuade you to purchase one of these for your classroom.

Carter and Chris- You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class.  You don't have to buy batteries.  You can listen to yourself, you can do your spelling words and record yourself if you do.  Now you know about the microphone.

Megan and Caylie-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class because you can listen to how fluent and accurate you are.  You don't need to buy batteries because you can charge it on your computer.  Now you know how to use the Easi Speak recorder and you should buy it!

Preston and Rainie-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class because you don't have to buy batteries- you just charge it on your computer.  You record your voice and listen to see if you are fluent and accurate.  Your kids will like it because they can hold a microphone.  You can do your spelling words with the Easi Speak recorder.  Now you should buy the Easi Speak recorder.

Hayley and Maddie-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class.  You should buy it for your class because you can listen and see if you were a fluent reader.  You can charge it on your computer.  Since you can charge it on your computer you don't need to buy batteries.  Not buying batteries means saving money.  If you use it, you won't drop it because it has a little necklace you wear when you use it.  You should buy it!  Now you can decide if you want to buy it!

Jack and Max-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class because you can record yourself read a book.  You can record yourself do spelling.  It is the best thing ever.  So you should get it for your kids.  You can record anything- even yourself and you do not have to get batteries.  You know it will be fun for you and your kids.  We told you how fun it is!

Holli and Dani-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class.  You can listen to your fluency and accuracy.  It doesn't run on batteries, it charges on your computer.  And that's why we want you to buy the Easi Speak recorder.

Emily and Kinsey-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class because it's little and doesn't take up that much space.  You can record and listen to see if you had enough fluency.  And you don't need batteries because it charges on the computer.  You can write your spelling words without looking at your list and then record that word and listen to see if you got it correct.  Now you know why we are persuading you to buy it.

Jackson and Luke-  You should buy an Easi Speak recorder for your class.  It is recharged in your computer.  It is small and doesn't take up a lot of space.  It is so easy to use!  You can listen to your fluent reading too.  This is why you should buy an Easi Speak recorder.

And if that doesn't convince you, check out this sweetie who practiced his reading fluency by reading old poems from his poetry notebook... that cute little first grade voice is enough to make a teacher's heart melt!

So, you heard why my kiddos love the Easi Share recorder- here's what I like as a teacher:

*It really is super easy!  Red means record, greens means play, arrow means go to the next track.
*I LOVE the battery thing!  My kiddos were actually the ones who pointed it out to me when we were talking about reasons you should get one.  I have so many other devices in my classroom that I am constantly replacing batteries in.  I sooo appreciate that this doesn't have any!
*I love that my students are critically examining their reading.  They came up with the whole "fluency and accuracy" thing they wrote about above- not me.  And I think that's awesome.
*I, as a teacher, could record things on there for them- books, directions, messages... I haven't tried it yet, but it's definitely a possibility!
*The audio quality is great!
*Love the "necklace" to help with taking care and not dropping, etc...
*Because it's a "microphone"... it's a HUGE deal.  Extremely motivating!

You can learn all the technical info at Learning Resources website by clicking the image below.
So, are you convinced?  If you'd like a chance to win one, leave a comment below telling me how you would use this in your classroom.  I'll choose a winner at random this weekend and you will get one for FREE from Learning Resources!

Feel free to spread the word on your blog or blog FB page too- I know you'll be so happy to get one of these in your hot little hands!

  6. It would be super exciting if I could win the Easi Speak for my classroom! There are multiple reasons why I would love it, but most of all I want it to encourage and motivate my students. Kids love anything new and cool like this, and to see them get excited over reading would be totally awesome! It would work wonders with my ELL students!

  8. I would really love to have my first grade students record themselves reading fluently throughout the school year. It would be an amazing resource to have these recordings for parents to hear as well. I can just imagine filling a CD for students to take home at the end of the school year.

  9. i'd have students read their published writing pieces into it to create a new type of celebration. some kids are just too shy to read in front of anyone--this might be a way to get them into the celebration :o)

  11. how would I NOT use it?!
    We could def. use something to practice fluency, esp. something fun at this time of year. It would also be great for motivating lower readers, and we all have 'em. They are often uncomfortable reading aloud so this may do the trick!

  12. Oh my goodness. I just showed this recorder to another teacher yesterday. I really want 1 in my room to practice fluency.

  13. I think I would get the most use out of it by using it for fluency practice/ checks. But, I'm sure we could use it somehow for interviewing people for research (and many other ways too)!

  15. I would love an Easi Speak Microphone for my classroom! We just started using a program called Literacy First in our school in place of Dibbles. You have to test the kiddos each quarter and record their fluency success. I would use this in my classroom by recording my kiddos reading their test and making a portfolio of their progress to share with them and parents throughout the year!

  20. I would LOVE to win the Easi Speak. As a kindergarten teacher, much of my day is spent repeating, repeating, and repeating how to do things "independently" at reading stations. If I could prerecord directions and other information, my students could do things on their own, leaving me the valuable time (and peace and quiet) to meet with my reading groups. I would also love to use this to record my beginning readers. So often they say "I can't read" and aren't confident in their newfound abilities. If I had an Easi Speak, I could show them just how much they know! Pick me!!!!

  23. I would love the chance to win the easy speak for my 2nd grade classroom. Not only could we use it for reading fluency, but we could also use it to read and record student-written stories. This is another tool that would empower students, enabling them to "listen" to themselves read so that they can make changes to continually improve. Thanks for the chance!

  24. What an awesome giveaway!! I could use this in lots of ways! I love the idea of the kids recording thier reading to practice thier fluency! This is just another engaging tool that would motivate them to read and let them listen to themselves so they can hear how they sound reading! LOVE it!!

  25. I would love to use the Easi Speak so that my new readers (I teach Kindergarten) can read and then hear themselves read their books on the Easi Speak. I know this would be a hit in my classroom and would motivate students to want to learn to read.

  27. I would use the Easi-Speak as a reflection tool. After children have participated in an activity, say in rotations, they could leave an audio refelction about their learning. This could then be played back to the whole class at the end of the lesson. A great assessment tool!

  28. I would love to have an Easi Speak in my classroom! I teach first grade and at this time of year we are working sooo hard on fluency and intonation. Having an Easi Speak would allow my students to record themselves reading. They could then rate each other using some of the great fluency station sheets that I have downloaded recently!!! Thanks for the chance to win one! Mrs. V

  30. This is a great idea. I have 30 first graders this year and getting to listen to all of them read is a big challenge for me. I've tried having them read into the computer but the microphone isn't strong enough for me to hear them clearly. I love having my kids independent. With these hand-held devices they could go anywhere in the room and read. What a great motivator! What kid doesn't love talking into the mike? Whether I win the giveaway or not, thanks for the posting.

  31. I would love this! As everyone said, fluency is a great way to use it in the classroom. I would also love to listen to my struggling readers in it.

  42. What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win. After reading your post, I think this would be great to record directions on and if a student forgets what to do next, they can listen to it. It would also be great to record a message for your students if you were absent. Of course, it is a fantastic tool for fluency too.

  50. I would love to use this microphone in my classroom for a couple different things. I could record the directions to center activities that students could play for themselves while I pull reading groups. I would also allow my students to use it for presentations, whether it is practicing for one to hear how they sound when speaking or recording part of it for later use. Of course, I would allow my students to use it to work on their expression, tone, and other aspects of their reading practice. I love your idea of having your students write about the Easi speak for their persuasive essays. Cute!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would LOVE to have one in my classroom! I'd use it to practice fluency for the Aims Web probes. It would be great fun to have the kids record them reading their own stories or poems--can you send it home for parents to listen to or would that not be a good idea?

  53. I would use this so the children could hear themselves reading so I can better help them with their fluency. I would also use this when we do author reading which is simply the children reading to the class what they have written. Some of the kids are so quiet and I would like them to hear what we hear.

  65. I always say that I need to be able to clone myself and this might help! I could have students recording themselves reading fluently while I am working with other students in a guided reading group. It also looks like it would be motivating for my kiddos that resist practicing their reading until someone sits down to listen. Then they would read all day!

I just started the Daily 5 this week and would love to implement it into my "Read to Self" stations so that my students could hear themselves read. It would not only be used as an assessment tool for me but I would teach my students how to self-assess.

  92. What a neat product! Not only would it be a great tool for developing fluency and expression in reading, but YES, also a tool for spelling; critical analysis of their own writing (reading and then listening to it to make sure it makes sense and is complete); plus a fun way to practice retelling, summarizing, & author's purpose, etc. in language arts; recording facts learned in science, and social science;and practicing oral presentations! ALSO, how wonderful it would be for my students with special needs, i.e. a language disoder that make writing and reading nearly impossible, an English language learner and another with autism! Thank you for the opportunity! It has limitless potential and I want one!

  93. Wow! What a cool product. My class would go crazy for this and it would really help motivate some of my more reluctant readers to work on their fluency. Thanks for offering it. ~ Amanda @ The Teaching Thief

I have many second language students who need to practice speaking and reading. And of course I have children who need fluency practice.
    I read the reviews and now I need to save to buy one, if I don't win. Which is the reality of "winning" anything. Thank you for the inforatmion on this new product. Have a wonderful weekend.

  99. What a great giveaway!! I would love to win this. I could see using this several ways, but my students love to read out loud and we have been working on recognizing puncuation and it's importance in fluency. I would have them record themselves reading their "just right" books and then re-read it by listening to themselves. :-)

  101. I would you the device for students read into the microphone then listen and revise their oral reading. I have done this iPod Touches and iPads but I think the microphone would be awesome!

  102. Wow! What a terrific giveaway! This would be great to use for fluency practice and especially as a motivational tool for my struggling ones who are tired of repeated readings. Also great for recording instructions for learning centers during RtII time.

  104. I would love to have one of these! I use a "fake" microphone for my students to share their writing workshop pieces. They would be so excited to use a real microphone. It would also be great to encourage fluency!

  106. I use those red listening phones in my listening center so that my students can hear if they are being fluent. This would give them great ownership over their reading fluency.

  108. This would be absolutely incredible to have in my classroom! I have so many possible uses for it! I think one of the ways I would use it the most would be to record my students reading and they could listen to themselves and assess their own fluency. I'd also use it for running records or Dibels/Aimsweb testing. Additionally I think it would be great to use for recording directions and having my kiddos listen and follow them. It would be great in morning meeting too for all kinds of things!

  111. I've been looking for something like this for a while. I have a bunch of book sets that I wish I had the cd's for. The CD's for stories are so expensive, it would be much more cost efficient if I recorded them and groups could listen to them. I would also like to have the students record themselves to hear how they sound when they are reading.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  116. This would be great for practicing fluency, but I could also use it as my news reporters microphone. I teach 5th grade and we do a weather report every day. Students could also become reporters and include an interview in their news report.
