Review and GiVeAwAY of the HearALL Assessment Recorder

I was contacted by Learning Resources to review their 
I have to say, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it at first, but quickly found out!  Of course, I can see it being used to record progress monitoring so that I could listen for miscues later when I had more time to concentrate and focus on their reading… 
But this particular day I decided to use it during my small group instruction time to record my kids while they read.  First of all, they were super excited to “be a movie star” and perform.  It is easy to use, once you read the directions, plus it picks up sound really well…even my soft speakers could be heard.  I let them read and then we played it back.  I let them listen and follow along.  We also listened for mistakes, or words that they had to sound out, which I let them use a highlighter to highlight in the paragraph.  All in all, it was very successful and the kids LOVED it.  I was sort of scared that they might recognize how slow some of them read, and feel bad….but they didn’t.  They were just excited to hear themselves.  It was a moment to shine.  I can see using the recorder for Reader’s Theater, either to practice or to record the final version.  I also think it would be fun to upload their pictures and the recording into
Smilebox and share online or email to parents!

 It has been a HUGE hit with my kids during stations and also during intervention.  
They also have a version for Letters, Blends, AND Word Families!  
All of them are on my wish list!!!


  1. This is amazing…with the new Common Core the students are supposed to record themselves reading and we do not have the resources to do this at my school. I would love to win! With that said, I follow your blog!

  2. Jennifer: I have just become a follower of your blog, so please enter me into the drawing for that.

    Since you use the Popcorn Sight Word Game, have you ever heard the first-grade version of Jack Hartmann's song "Popcorn Words"?

    I think you know already that I'm a blind pre-k teacher, but my county came and videotaped me last week. If you'd like to see the video, check out the post (named "Wow") on my blog.

  3. I am having difficulty linking to the youtube for lakeshore products to be able to leave a comment, but he first 2 steps were followed. Do I need to do more than subscribe and set up a google account?

  4. Awesome! I love being able to record my kids so I can listen later! Sometimes in the moment you miss something or there are other distractions. This is great to use during a "quiet time" so you can really check!!
