Using Teaching Videos for Reading Instruction

The most important thing to foster when teaching is student engagement. If students are engaged, they are learning. Using videos (the right kind of video) in the classroom is one aspect of using a multimedia approach or strategy which can truly engage students.

So how do you choose the correct types of videos for your classroom. To truly engage students, a video (or accompaning materials) should require something of the students. Students should be asked to actively think and participate.  That is why I’ve created several teaching videos to help teachers engage students during reading instruction – specifically learning (or review of) word families.

How do my word family videos engage students?

  •  First, I’ve created the videos with a cute “Monster Detective” theme! These little colorful monsters are fun and inviting….
    wz 15 f
  •  Second, I’ve created the videos to directly engage students in the ‘hunt to solve the mystery of finding the correct words‘…
    wz 15 g
    wz 15 h.jpg
    After each ‘mystery’ is presented, the video gives students time to think and select the word before showing the correct answer…
    wz 15 i


    (If a teacher believe the student(s) need additional time to solve the mystery than what I have provided, it is easy for the teacher to simply pause the video.)

    At the end of the video, students will continue to be engaged as they review all the words in the video…

    wz 15 j

    (As with the earlier segments of the videos, the review section gives students time to think about which word is the correct one! )

  •  Third, to engage students even more, I provide a student workbook that directly corresponds with each video.
    wz 22 f
    The student workbook can be used along side the video, after a video is watched, for homework or any way the teacher believes is most appropriate for his/her students!

As of 7/18/19, I’ve created in this Word Family Video series the following:

7 Videos for short a word families

  1.  –ab
  2.  –ad
  3.  –ag
  4.  –am
  5.  –an
  6.  –ap
  7.  –at

 5 Videos for short e word families

  1.  –et
  2.  –en
  3.  –eg
  4.  –ed
  5.  –ell

I will be continually adding new word family videos to my TPT store! You will be able to find them here.

wz 253 f

This has been created for 2nd and 3rd grades, however younger or older students might enjoy as well.

Directions (included in the download):

Snowman Activity Directions
(Students will have fun creating their own unique snowman!)
Distribute or place copies of the following snowman pages. On each page will be 1 snowman and several colored articles of clothing.
Students are to cut out each piece along with the snowman and then begin to create unique snowmen by gluing the clothing of their choice on to his/her snowman. (One page of this download provides the snowman template page without color. Use this page if you desire to have students color the article of clothes themselves.)

Snowman Graphing Directions
After all the snowmen have been created, work as a class to create a graph (or graphs) showing the articles of clothing (and their colors) that were used! This can be a very simple graph for younger students or can be multiple graphs displaying much greater detail. This download does provide some ‘simple and ready to use’ graphs for students if more
detailed ones are not assigned or demonstrated. Also included our uncolored articles of clothing which can be colored and used on the
provided graphs.

Ideas:
Use the first half of this activity (the creation of the snowmen) as a center activity.
Divide students up into cooperative groups and have them work to create a graph (or multiple graphs) of the snowmen created by group members.
Create a bulletin board around the activity displaying the snowmen as well as a graph (or graphs created).
