All Jacob had to do was pre-record a parrot chirping onto the sound sticker. He found a great video on YouTube of a parrot chirping. So, he used that audio and captured it with the LiveScribe Pen and Sound Sticker. Then, he put the sticker on his animal report paper to bring to school. To see how easy it is to record onto a Sound Sticker, click here for a tutorial video.
On a side note, here is a fantastic video sharing 10 ways to integrate the LiveScribe Pen into your classroom. I've also blogged about LiveScribe before, and you can view that post by clicking here.
Five Ways You Can Use Sound Stickers in Your Classroom:
1. Have students record a review of a book once they've read it. Place the Sound Sticker on the cover for other classmates to listen to when deciding on a book from the classroom library.
2. Have students record additional information about a place they've visited on a map. Add the Sound Stickers to the map so that other friends from class can learn more about their community, state, and country.
3. Have students record themselves playing an instrument. Place the Sound Sticker on the sheet of music so that others can hear the melody.
4. Have students make a hypothesis in science class. Place the Sound Sticker on the lab report. Then, their lab partner can record the outcome on a second Sound Sticker to place on the bottom of the report.
5. Have students record the directions for a math game to place on the game's box. This way, other classmates can listen to the Sound Sticker as they're setting the game up. This could save players time so that there would be more time for actual game play.
Keep in mind you can change out the Sound Stickers daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. It's your choice. They're a ton of fun and easy to use! You can even use the same Sound Sticker again by deleting the recording and recording a new segment. So your maps, books, and game boxes will not get torn by removing stickers.
*You do need a LiveScribe Pen in order to use the LiveScribe Sound Stickers.

|Talk Bar Give-Away: scroll down to the bottom of this post|
As a teacher, you can place photos of landforms and bodies of water in each square. The pictures just slide right in the opening on the side. Then, students can describe the characteristics of the landform or body of water. You could also cut index cards or slips of paper up and write blends or long vowel combinations on each card. Students could think of several words that go with each sound and record their thinking. Children could also start telling a story and have their friends add to each square, like a sequential timeline. They could illustrate each frame of their story, too. The finished product would be a collaborative story. This could be an activity placed in a center or for early finishers. In math, you could put a number in each frame. Students could record problems that could equal that given number (ex: write 10 on a card... students may record audio stating: 2 x 5; 4 + 6; 12 - 2; etc...). Kids can even take their own photos to print off and put in each frame of the Talk Bar. Their friends could record audio using strong adjectives that describe their friend's photos. I love that you can draw a photo of anything, take a picture or anything, or grab an image from any book or magazine to use for the Talk Bar.
There are so may options you can use the Talk Bar for in any content area. The kids enjoy thinking of innovative ways to use it, too! Playing their audio back and hearing their voices is priceless. I always get a kick out of listening to their thinking. They are so smart and creative.
