Editing Earphones

Rereading our own work to make sure it makes sense and to fix any mistakes we might notice is a real challenge for first graders. Often students will bring me their work and as they read it to me they will immediately want to change things. In order to help them take responsibility for their writing we have begun using editing earphones. They can read their writing in whispers into the earphones and hear it clearly. They have also been using the earphones to help themselves hear the sounds in words they are trying to spell.
