Mrs. Pelletier from Fx Station VA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A New Listening Station for Literacy Development!!

My students need a new listening station to allow them the opportunity to listen to and follow along with books on tape/CD. Listening to books and following along in text is an important part in reading.

My Students

My students come from all different types of backgrounds and cultures. My homeroom alone includes ten different languages! This school has an impressively strong sense of community, as well. It is truly unparalleled how our school community can come together for the common goal of helping each other grow. These students deserve nothing but the best!

We are diverse and value working collaboratively.

Our students are engaged learners! The students are challenged to think critically and to become problem solvers. Our students are also part of STEAM classes, and they love incorporating technology when our resources allow.

My Project

Each day my first graders visit different literacy stations in order to work on their literacy skills to become better readers and writers. One of their FAVORITE stations to visit is the listening station!

Listening skills are an important part of communication skills.

Children need to focus on learning listening skills, even more so at the elementary level. It has been said that listening has three parts to it: (1) hearing the speaker, (2) understanding what the speaker is saying and (3) making a judgment based on that understanding. With a new listening station (and headphones), I could broaden my classroom listening and technology center. It is important for our students to become active listeners at a young age. These resources would help me do that with my First grade class.

As an elementary teacher, I know that listening is important to a child's development.

With the use of a new listening station set used in conjunction with book and CD sets, my First grade students could engage in a listening center to reinforce listening skills. You can help us by donating to this project so my First grade students can have a wonderful listening center to listen to our wonderful books.
