Close Reading with Audio

Today my 5th grade students used Google Classroom to practice close reading.  Students were sent an electronic copy of Ray Bradbury's "There Will Come Soft Rains" which they pulled up on their Chromebook screens.  I played an audio version of the short story read by Leonard Nimoy while they followed along to the text.  After a class discussion of theme and the purpose of the embedded Sara Teasdale poem, students commented on Google Classroom.  Robots, Spock, and reading; Mrs. Stoebe's 5th grade students rock!
