Digital tools make it easy to capture student voice. Use these project ideas and student samples to inspire technology integration that builds and evaluates student fluency.
These samples were created by students and classrooms using Wixie on Chromebooks, iPads, PCs or Macs.
Wixie include templates that ask students to record a leveled passage. Teachers can assign passages over the school year to capture and evaluate fluency growth.
Books with repeating patterns make it easy for emerging readers to "read" a story without being able to decode all of the words. They also help students build fluency as they read the same words and phrases over and over. Read your favorite pattern story, identify the pattern, and ask students create their own versions.
Students write and read stories that include sight words. This project began with a template that included sentence starters for I go and I see.
KG Ss unscrambled words in #Wixie to sequence sentences from Eric Carle's Brown Bear book. Then they drew pictures and recorded themselves reading the sentence. @Coles_Fletcher @ColesRoadrunner @TreadwellMrs @pwcsela @Tech4Learning pic.twitter.com/cnuK5heJ0G— Mrs. Martin (@ITCColes) March 8, 2022
My kinders are SO engaged with their @Tech4Learning #Wixie ABC Books! We’re reading different alphabet stories, sounding out words, practicing basic sentence structure and identifying letters on the keyboard. Some are so excited, they work on it at home-for fun! #SharonStrong pic.twitter.com/9WuYSC3NKF— Ginny Daniels, Instructional Media Specialist (@GinnyMoy) February 11, 2022
We're loving using audio, video, text, images, and drawing on Wixie team projects to practice our sight words and to reflect on our reading! pic.twitter.com/W4a8TPIVjG— Ms. Schroeder (@MsSchroeder1st) February 19, 2021
I am so proud of my second graders, and how they’re creating multimedia resources. Here they used Wixie, collecting words that are related to topics of interest, and they even recorded their pronunciation. @FcpsLtc @ColumbiaES_fcps pic.twitter.com/QWwqNrddnG— Sra.Noor@CES (@SraNoor1) February 19, 2021
Gave Wixie a try for more oral language practice with my first graders. Listen to the use of transition words in this student’s response and the translanguaging in the 2nd video!! @TylerHeights @EngLangAcqAACPS pic.twitter.com/SpW0h8r9SC— Elizabeth McMullen (@emcmulle4) December 17, 2020
A few examples of how my kinders used Wixie this week: comparing stories, building CVC words, identifying words with the short o sound and exploring number bonds in a Bridges math lesson. @MrsRode @elmwoodes pic.twitter.com/Ebhcuh9gYE— Rita Phillips (@RitaPhillips85) January 14, 2021
