Listening centers are an important part of children learning to read. These materials will be used to start my classroom listening center; my students will choose an audio book to play and use the corresponding book to read along. By listening to a book and following along with the audio, students can begin to build more fluent listening and reading comprehension, decode unfamiliar words, learn new vocabulary and introduce books that students may not have chosen before. This center is especially important to my classroom and school as we are a very diverse school. 50% of my classroom are English Language Learners (ELL), meaning English is not their first language. Listening centers help ELL students learn unfamiliar words and patterns of speaking, intonations and expression while listening to someone read as they are following along in the book. Most listening centers have CD players where the students will only use it to hear a hard copy book being read. This listening center will be unique in that students will use the Kindle Fire tablets both for hard copy books in which the students can follow along as they're being read to as well as digital books through the Kindle book app. In a world of growing technology, it is important to incorporate it as much as we can.
