Mrs. Coonce from Harlem GA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Reading Foundations: Listening to Stories Makes Us Better Readers

My students need headphones to stay focused on their learning while listening to stories and practicing skills on their Kindles during Daily 5.

My Students

I teach in a Title I, low income, public school located in a small town where over 50% of our population qualifies for free and reduced lunch. My students are enthusiastic learners who rise to meet the rigorous standards of reading, writing, and math.

They are a curious and energetic group of students who are learning to be independent thinkers.

We move often and embrace each individual learning style in my room. Some students are great writers, others are mathematicians, and others read anything they can get their hands on. Students are encouraged to use technology, dry erase boards, paper and pencils, manipulatives, movement, and partners to learn and grow.

We celebrate every success reached in our room- no matter how small or how long it takes!

My Project

Every day my students are in charge of their learning during Language Arts and Math time. The students rotate to stations that guide their learning. Two of these stations include Kindles and computers. The students choose what story to listen to on the Kindle or math app that helps reinforce the skills that they are working on. On the computer, they practice fluency facts, phonics or phonemic awareness. Each student works at their own pace and level.

Headphones would help keep students focused on their own learning and growth.

Watching them master skills that they have been working on or read for the first time is priceless! Their excitement is contagious.

They would love to be able to hear clearly without the distraction in the rest of the classroom. Headphones will help students to continue to be in charge of their learning and enjoy what they are learning more easily.
