Books for Our New Listening Station!

My students need 2 copies each of 12 books to read as they listen to the audio version, along with contact paper to help our paperback copies last longer.

My Students

We all love to listen to new adventures being read to us, but you get so much more out of it when you read along the journey.

My students are from a rural district in the central Wisconsin area.

I teach a lively class of 5th graders at the local middle school. Due to recent economic issues, our school is seeing increased class sizes - which makes it so much more difficult to reach my students on an individualized level. So far, the kids, along with the staff, have been working together the best they can and we're making do, but it's a daily struggle to provide each of our students with the education that they deserve. My students love to read, and I have been trying to find new and inventive ways to work with all of my students to the best of their needs. Reading Workshop has become a favorite part of the day for my classes. I would love to be able to expand our workshop time and make it more engaging for my students at the same time. My students get so excited about our Donors' Choose projects and often check the progress of our projects on a daily basis.

My Project

For the upcoming school year, we will be lucky enough to have a brand new listening station in our classroom during our Reading workshop time. I have a few audio titles and hard copies of the books to share with my students, but I would love for each student at the listening station be able to read along as they listen. By reading along as my students are hearing the stories read, they will not only increase their reading skills overall, but will be able to increase their reading fluency, up their personal vocabularies, and learn to read with expression. They will be able to talk together to work on comprehending what they read and truly be able to experience the book to it's fullest.

Not only will these books help them increase their reading skills in my language arts classroom, but they will be able to carry it over to everything else in their lives as well.

We greatly appreciate any help you can give!
