Ms. Roberts from Philadelphia PA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a listening center and audio books to help them learn to be proficient speakers, readers and listeners in English.
Our students are English Language Learners, most of whom come from high stress living situations. Many have parents who are ill, deceased, working several jobs or struggling to find work. Many have been exposed to sometimes extreme violence. Some of our students, though born here, come from families with undocumented adults and live with the fear of seeing their families split in two. But all of our kids hope to overcome the trauma of their lives to become successful in whatever way they define this and our teaching staff is here to support them.
"Civilization is a race between education and chaos." - H.G. Wells. My third grade class - mostly ESOL children far below reading level - can vastly improve their skills through the shared reading experience provided by a vibrant listening center.
My students need to read along with high-proficiency modeled reading as much as possible.
Most of their parents can't read to them in English. Our school is in a high-poverty area and has almost no resources. Often, my students only speak and read English during the school day; once they go home, there is no one to support their continued practice.
I am asking for a listening center and audio books. This listening center will help develop all four domains of English Language Learning (listening, speaking, reading, writing) through modeling, scaffolding and practice. It will give our bright and enthusiastic students more opportunities to become proficient in English.
