Fourth Grade Listening Centers

My students need functioning headsets with a junction box for multiple listeners, for part of the Daily 5 Instruction in my classroom, Listening to Reading.

My Students

It turns out that broken headsets don't help students who are trying to use a listening center. In fact, it makes it impossible. With your donations, we can purchase these new headsets that come in this center so they can listen to reading! It comes with a junction box so 8 students can share.

Our fourth graders are voracious learners, and the grade level as a whole has a spectacular sense of humor.

Our school is very transient, with many students coming from the military, so we like to make them feel at home. Even in the intermediate level, they love listening to books being read to them, which is why this is so important.

My Project

As part of the Common Core Initiative that I am sure you've heard lots about, our grade level is initiating The Daily 5, a teaching method that focuses on the key aspects of literacy (decoding, fluency, comprehension, listening, writing, vocabulary, etc.). Specifically, one of the segments is "Listening to Reading". For this station to happen, students need access to technology that will allow them to hear books being read to them, to improve their auditory comprehension and to model fluent reading. While we can get access to CD players, using them in a classroom is too distracting without headphones. With these headsets, the fourth grade will be able to do just that. They will listen to audio CDs, and will discuss response questions that relate to the story and record those answers either in a community journal or on poster paper for display in the classroom.

There is only so much time in the day to read to students.

In order to give them the most access possible, we need your help to purchase these listening centers so small groups of our students can hear stories being read to them to improve their comprehension and fluency.
