Children Love Listening to Stories

My Students

Many students don't have someone at home to read to them. In addition to the many read alouds, shared reading and guided reading activities I do in class, I would like my students to be able to use a listening center during our reading/literacy time. Students will be able to listen to high quality fiction and non fiction books.

Our school has embraced comprehensive balanced literacy and creating critical thinkers.

I have a class of 24 little students who come to school each day eager to learn. And the thing they love the most is reading!

My Project

Children take great pleasure in listening to stories. Tapes and CD's that come with a copy of the book are particularly valuable, because children can follow along as the narrator reads. A wireless listening center with a radio transmitter will help my students be able to listen to good books without getting cords twisted and build a love of reading.

Hearing a book read on tape helps children see how the words on the page can come alive in a fluid, expressive way.

It helps them focus on the sounds of words read without interruption and provides a model of fluent reading. Audio books also give kids an important introduction to listening, a skill that they must master in order to learn to read.
