My second-grade scholars are primarily English Language Learners with a passion for reading. Gathering on the carpet to listen to stories read aloud or listening to stories on the computer is one of their favorite activities to do in school.
Please help us grow into better readers, so we become tomorrows leaders!
My second-graders love coming to school because they are given many opportunities to practice their reading through their day in every way. Reading and vocabulary is built into all subject areas creating lifelong readers. Whether they are practicing sight words through their favorite song, or listening to a friend read them a story, these second-grade scholars are well on their way to gaining the most essential skills a child can have that will lead to them becoming a productive adult.
In order for my students to become successful readers, they must first see what good reading looks like and hear what good reading sounds like as well as increase their vocabulary. Reading has become their favorite pass time. They have 3 opportunities to practice independent reading in their day. First, they can read their favorite book to a friend. Second, they can curl up in the library with their favorite book and read alone, or they can listen to reading on the computer.
This project will do just that!
The classroom headphone set will allow students to listen to plain old good reading from the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s award-winning children’s literacy website, Storyline Online and other websites. It will help them increase their vocabulary with the use of music and the natural ability children have to memorize song lyrics with a year-long subscription to Flocabulary.
