First, I collected some supplies:
Here are my bags of books hanging up.
I put 5 stories on each iPod. I then put the books in a hanging bag and slapped one of my iPod Labels on the front. The kids would take a bag and know instantly which iPod they needed.
|Check out these labels on TpT!|
If you have multiple of the same book, you could get this splitter to make the iPod a group center.
I also got some silicone cases for my ipods. I felt like it would help the kids from dropping them on the floor.
From left the right: my old nano from 6 years ago, my cousin's that she didn't use anymore, the purple one I was able to purchase with school supply money, and the last two were a generous donation from Donorschoose.
Well, silly me, but I accidentally ordered too many covers! So, I have 4 left: black, green, pink, and clear. They fit the newest 7th Generation. And I'm going to give them away!
This one will be short and sweet: just leave a comment below telling me if you can use them in your classroom. I'll throw in a set of the organization labels, too. But you better go quick! The giveaway ends tonight at 10pm Hawaii Standard Time.
I used my old 2007 Macbook Pro to convert my tapes. I usually leave this laptop at school to use with my projector (the school gave us Netbooks, which don't work very well and you can't play discs on them, so I don't use mine). I decided to use it to make my tutorial because I already had downloaded Audacity on it, so it was one less step.
On my old Macbook, I plugged the 35 mm cord into the microphone jack:
A newer Mac doesn't have that jack, it just has the headphone. So, you will need to purchase a USB adapter to make it work. I got one from Amazon.
Hope that helps! If you are still having problems or have questions, you can find many answers here. I am not a technology genius, so this is all the help I'm equipped to give! Lol.
