Reading comprehension and fluency are vital in the second grade classroom. In my classroom to promote these skills, having books on tapes and CDs allows emerging readers to hear appropriate reading skills, and phrasing as they listen to various genres of literature. Listening centers allow emergent readers to gain confidence in their skills as they hear the words as they follow them in print. Having audio text also assist second language learners gain a grasp of the English language. Listening centers also promote general listening skills which are needed in communication with others. The Classroom CD & Single Cassette Player and headphones will be used in conjunction with books and stories that are on cassette and CDs to promote reading skills and engage students with the love of learning to read. The students will listen to literacy materials throughout the school day as they participate in literacy centers. Students displaying all levels of literacy skills will have access to the materials to strengthen their skills. Listening to text provides a fun way to strengthen literacy skills. Often the stories contain sound effects and other auditory enhancements that keep the students engaged. Using the listening center creates a different atmosphere for reading. I often set up more than one listening center in my classroom since it is a popular center. Over the years our headphones and cassette/CD player has encountered wear, and it needs to be replaced. I would like to keep the listening center going for my students so they will continue to love learning to read.
