This project requests one Portable CD Player, one Wireless Classroom Headphone set and extra headphones, and Read-Alongs including Favorite Picture Books and Classroom Classics to create a listening station. The listening station will provide students with multiple opportunities to listen and follow along to classic narrative stories. It will expose students to additional reading resources. The more we read to students we increase their language acquisition, early reading performance, social development, and later success in school. Many ELL and socioeconomic students are at a disadvantage in literacy development. This is largely due to speaking their native language in their homes or not being exposed to enriched print. The listening center will provide students with language specific activities such as: reading to them in a listening center, guided comprehension writing activities, retelling and recalling strategies, and phonemic awareness activities. As Kindergarten teachers we read to our students every day for several purposes. We know young children like stories and nursery rhymes, but we also know the use of these types of literature build comprehension skills. The listening center will provide students another opportunity to build a stronger comprehension foundation. After listening to the story, students will talk about the main idea of the book, they may draw or write specific words from the text, discuss the characters, solve or identify problem and setting. Making the above connections is a strategy that will help students comprehend more easily.
