"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and the world better than you found it." -Marian Wright Edelman
Our school, although high performing, is part of a Title I district where a majority of students are under-performing.
Since the students at our individual school perform well on state tests, we are not given extra or additional funds for supplies that are provided to our neighboring schools. Our school is K-8 and services a variety of diverse learners. I work with four different grade levels of students, both boys and girls, who struggle or need some extra support in reading. Therefore, I must ask for your help!
Listening is a skill that will benefit my students for a lifetime.
As I work with small groups of children, I want to provide an opportunity for them to hear the correct way words are pronounced, the expression used when speaking, and the flow and pace of words spoken out loud.
Having a listening center available will accomplish this goal as my students listed to fiction and non-fiction books on CD. I need a center that accommodates more students listening to stories being read or word lists being correctly pronounced. The center I've requested allows eight students to listen at the same time. Not only will these materials help my English-only students but especially my dual language learners, too, as they can have correct English speech demonstrated to them daily in a fun way. Strengthening listening skills at an early age opens doors for reading improvement overall and practicing with these materials will foster good listening habits.
Thank you for helping me make this request a reality!
