While checking out in Target, I glanced down and saw these little voice recorders. I thought what an excellent idea to record quick instructions for independent centers. For example, for Art Center, I recorded, "Please write your name, then paint." I velcroed the recorders to each center and put a star sticker on the "play" button, so they know how to make it talk. The recorders evan have a "lock" switch, so the children can't accidentally delete your instructions. Great find!
