So, you know those FABulous whisper phones that you can buy at some of our favorite stores???
You know the ones...
Anyway, I want to show you something that I learned, a long time ago, and have used them FOREVER!
They are my version of whisper phones, but cheaper and more durable.
Although, I DID have to go buy a few more because some of mine have grown legs and disappeared....
That's what I get for lending things out to people and not remembering to ask for it back.
At least their students are benefiting, right?! lol
Anyway, I went to one of my favorite stores....
Starts with an "L" and rhymes with grows...lol
Go to their plumbing aisle and find these pipes...
they look weird, but you want these specific ones, because you can actually get more for your money - yay!
I think these are like $2.80 a piece...
Anyway, the smaller pieces come off...
and attach together to make a THIRD whisper phone! So, for less than $6, you get THREE whisper phones!
Even A likes them - haha!
When do I use these???
During small groups, when I send my kids off to finish reading their "book" or during our 15 minutes of silent reading EACH day...I have some kids who REALLY need to work on fluency..or some kids that just CAN NOT read in their heads - giving them these really help them to hear how they sound when they read, and they don't need to read too loud, LOVE them!
(I will be sure to post about it when school is back in session - in fact, I plan on doing a LOT about my guided reading - just for you Brittany, my sweet friend (hehe)!
Do you use them??
How do YOU use whisper phones??
