In-class reading and independent reading
I was doing shared reading with the Ladybug all of the time, which gets redundant.
I used Kami to display my annotations digitally.
I am able to input my annotations beforehand with the standards attached. This frees up some time for me so that I may have more in depth discussion with the students, versus highlighting and writing the entire time. This also keeps them actively involved with the digital world. I can then check their comprehension on the spot with questions and quick writes.
I do switch back and forth from paper copies of the assigned text to the digital version so that the students can see multiple ways to work with the reading. I assign stories from our curriculum which I am able to upload via a PDF that is saved on my teams Google Drive folder.
Practice a story with a single class first until you get comfortable. This way any errors that you encounter won't carry over into other class periods, which can lead to a big headache. I would recommend assigning a non-classroom text first so that the students can also get comfortable navigating the program before a big reading assignment.
