For the Love of Listening

My students need a listening station with 2 collections of audio books to support and increase their fluency and comprehension.

My Students

Wouldn't it be nice to have a functional listening center in the classroom. Every time we try to listen to one of my only five books on tape/CD the CD player never wants to work properly!

I teach in a public school and have many multi-sensory learners and many of those students are visual and auditory learners.

They truly enjoy when I read aloud to them. They are interested not only in the story but the illustrations too. Building a lesson from a read aloud is a fun way for my students to learn and interact with the story and each other.

My Project

Creating a listening center within the classroom will support the learners fluency and comprehension as well as giving them an opportunity to become independent learners. The students can find a comfortable place within the classroom, listen to the fluent narrator while following along with the story. This also gives them the chance to practice their fluency and decoding skills. The CD player will also afford the students the opportunity to record themselves as they read. They can then play it back and hear exactly how they sound.

Who doesn't like to have books read to them!

Not only does a listening center help these students utilize their reading strategies, it exposes them to a wide world of literature and read aloud. It also provides a place and opportunity for the love of literature through listening!
