Extra, Extra- Hear All About It!

My students need a reading center with CD players to help enhance their reading. Research shows that auditory books help improve and increase fluency.

My Students

Books can take my students on so many different adventures. My students come from various socioeconomic backgrounds and have a wide range of ability levels. We are a Title 1 school with over 40% of our students receiving free or reduced lunches. Our ESOL students are on the rise, and because of this and other factors, I have a wide range of ability levels. In my class, I have students coming to me on a kindergarten reading level to students that can read and comprehend at a 5th grade level. It's no longer just teaching 2nd grade for me, so I am always searching for activities that cover a range of ability levels. My goal is to be able to have book clubs in my classroom. I want to have quality books for all ranges of readers in my classroom.

My Project

Being a second grade teacher is the BEST! But being in second means I have a wide variety of reading levels. I have students that read at a kindergarten level to students reading at a 6th+ grade level. I have a wonderful variety of books on CD, but I don't have CD players anymore for students to listen to them. I have had some in the past, but they didn't last longer than a year before I had to replace them.

My students reading at a lower level or my ESOL students, would benefit by listen to books that have a larger set of vocabulary in them to help grow their reading and knowledge.

Not only do I want to use the wonderful books on CD resource again in my class, I want to encourage reading in all forms and create a reading goal station in my classroom. That is why I have requested all of the paper along with the CD players.

I want to help my students create goals and make certificates when students achieve those goals. It is so important to them to realize they are working towards a self-generated goal and I want to be able to help encourage students to obtain them. Hopefully the use of creating and achieving goals will set a path of continued goal setting and growth.
