Hello! I hope all is well!
I'm writing to tell you about Literably, a new tool that I'd like your student to use while they're at home.
I would like your student to complete a reading on Literably by [date]. I know you're busy, so I'll jump right to the key information. Please let me know if you have any questions.
What is Literably? Literably is a website/app that records students reading aloud and asks them comprehension questions. Literably then sends me information on your students' reading, so that I can better support them.
- On a laptop or Chromebook, students should go to literably.com/login, click I'm a Student, type my email ([teacher email address]), pick their names from the dropdown, and click Log In. Or, they can click this link literably.com/login?email=[teacher email address], pick their names and click Log In.
- On an iPad, students should click this link, install and open the Literably iPad App, type my email ([teacher email address]), pick their names from the dropdown, and click Log In.
Reading Once your student logs in, Literably will play a video that will introduce them to the program. Then, your student will read aloud, answer some questions, and log out. It should take your student 10-15 minutes at most.
Important Please do not help your student with their oral reading or comprehension while they are using Literably. The goal is to see what your student can do on their own, so that I can better support them going forward.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and I will be happy to help.
