Have you tried Talking Tin Lids in the classroom yet? They have great potential in the classroom and the children love them.
They were originally designed to help people who are visually impaired to identify their tinned food and household products. They come in the form of a magnetic cap that is designed to sit on top of any sized steel tin. The cap allows you to record a voice message, which can then be played back at any time with the touch of a button.
They are great in the classroom and it doesn’t take long to come up with a range of curricular opportunties which make good use of them. There is now even a downloadable file detailing a variety of classroom activities which help children develop their speaking and listening skills relating to the curriculum.
Currently available in 10 and 30 recording times.
