Read like a teacher: “What a Bad Dream,” by Mercer Mayer

A teacher wanted to create a reading station where children could read along with the video and practice their fluency. She asked two students to read into the Chromebook like a teacher would read to the class.

The clips were combined using WeVideo, and a still image of the book cover was used as the thumbnail. The page turning transition on the title page was used to match the movement of a real book.

The students love listening to each other and reading along in the reading station. They have become better readers because they want to read their books next.
