Want to add Kami-magic to your English Language Arts (ELA) classroom? In this video, you’ll learn how to:
From readings to completing tasks, Kami has the tools that allow you to complete your work more creatively in the style that suits you best. Let’s take this example from the point of view of a sixth grader. Students were instructed to highlight essential details in the text to practice their reading comprehension. Then they can sum up the points to type a simple summary camis text to speech, and dictionary tools can help students learn new vocabulary and gain reading fluency. With the Text-To-Speech tool. Students can use any voice available in their device and control the speed and playback to enhance comprehension.

We also have the Dictionary Tool to define unfamiliar words by clicking or highlighting the words you want to define. For lessons that require students to add text boxes, Kami’s Rich Text Editor will do just that trick. And with tonnes of fonts and formatting options, kids can let the creativity flow and even use emojis. Sometimes getting ideas across is easier to do verbally. That’s why students and teachers have access to Voice and Video Comment tools, allowing them to express their thoughts in a way that suits them best.
With our 6th grade lesson done, let’s try something from a high schoolers perspective. Here we’re reading Shakespeare’s As You Like It, and students were instructed to annotate the text according to a guide. Knowing what is instructed, we can use some of Kami’s best reading comprehension tools to complete the work. When analysing text, students can use the drawing tool to identify critical segments and use different colours to mark areas that don’t make sense or moments that caught their attention. Highlighting with the markup tool is easy. Once students make the annotations, they can elaborate more on the understanding by adding Text, Voice or Video comments. If they need more space to work on, students can always add new pages to any document by scrolling to the bottom and clicking the plus button.
If you assigned work to your students through a sharing link or an integrated Learning Management System, you’ll be able to answer any questions that students leave on the document and give feedback in real time.
