Independent Reading Activity with Instructional Series

How are you using the Instructional Series?
I would like to share how I have been working with classes to use this site for a follow up independent reading activity after an Instructional Reading Session. 

On an iPad, using Safari (yes truly Safari), type in http://instructionalseries.tki.org.nz/  
Use the filter function to the level of books your learner is working with. I have filtered to purple.  If you click on the word purple you will see the titles that are available to listen to independently or with a buddy or group. (using ear buds, or using as a listening post with a splitter.)

On the top right of the iPad, click on the upload icon, then click on 'add to Home Screen'

Click on the Add button on the top right.

This appears as an icon on the iPad to books in the Instructional Series filtered to Purple. 

The critical step now, is to add a purple sticker or dot to this iPad, so learners know if they are on purple this is the iPad for them. 

Repeat filtering to other levels, and adding other dots.

I would love to know how this works for your learners.
