My Students

My students love books, they love to be read to, and they love stories in general. I can tell them stories about my dog and they love to sit and listen. My class is an ESL class and many students are still learning the English language. They need additional support but they are doing well and making great achievements.

They are eager to learn and are always fully engaged in the lessons they are learning.

They love new adventures and new challanges.

My Project

By being able to have a listening library we are creating the love for literature and reading at a critical age. The listening library is teaching these young children how to hold a book, it teaches them the words, letters, pictures, drawings, how to turn a page, and how to follow along reading left to right.

My students love stories!!

They need headphones to be able to follow along with no distractions from the outside and a few more classic stories to expand their imagination and vocabulary.

Many of my students are ELL. The listening library will greatly enhance the English learning experience for them as well as broaden their vocabulary.
