Becoming Amazing Readers Through Listening!

My students need a listening center to listen to books during The Daily Five Literacy program.

My Students

One of the greatest experiences for a child is to be read to. I want my students to all have this experience.

I have a classroom of 18 very diverse students.

I have ten boys and eight girls. The school is a high poverty school where all of the students receive free lunches. They all have different interests and needs. This year I have implemented the Daily Five component into my literacy time. The Daily Five consists of five areas of reading instruction. Reading to yourself, read to someone, writing, word work, and listening. School started in August and I transferred to this school on September 10th. I started using the Daily Five right away. The students LOVE being able to take ownership in their learning. My students can now read independently for 14 minutes, which is Fabulous for First Graders!! The problem I have is that I do not have a listening center for them to listen to books. Being able to listen to reading inspires them to read and is a great model of fluent reading, plus the students love to have stories read to them.

My Project

If my class had a listening center, they will be able to improve their reading and become successful, fluent readers. My class will be prepared for second grade and for life. First grade is a very crucial point in a child's academic experience. If they are successful readers in first grade, and love reading, they will most likely become lifelong readers!

Please help these first graders.

You will have a life long impact on the lives of these children. When I was in the first grade I struggled with reading. My teacher was able to inspire me and by the end of the year, I was soaring with my reading abilities. I would like to have the same impact on my students and set them up for future success!
