Have you heard of EdPuzzle?  It is a free website, you just need a Google Account and verify that you work in a school.  This site allows you to store You Tube videos and edit them for your use with your students!  It has saved me so much time I cannot even begin to tell you!  Let me share with you the 3 things you can do with this website!

 

Once you search for and select your video…you will see icons across the top: scissor, microphone, and a speaker.

The scissor will allow you trim the clip so that it is the right length you need.  You can cut out a beginning credit, make shorter so you have time to view it in your session or end abruptly to work on predicting!

 

The microphone will allow you to record over the video.  You can record yourself asking questions.  You can even have students record themselves retelling the stories or videos!  There are a ton of storybooks on You Tube.  You can have students tell the stories in their own words.  This is great for summarization but also for articulation and fluency practice!  You can have students give wordless videos a voice!  The sky is the limit!

 

My favorite tool is the speaker.  This one turns videos into a quiz.  You can type in questions that will pause the video and ask students.  They can type in their responses or just verbally tell you before being able to continue with the video.  I use this tool the most to store my inferential and predicting questions so I don't forget the perfect spots to stop and ask!  Prep once and have it done!
