Fun-Dimentional Reading

My students need a CD player, along with a Complete Set of Paul Galdone CD Read-Alongs and Listen Read and Rhyme with Dr. Seuss.

I am a Special Education teacher and teach children from extreme to moderate reading disabilities. Many of them come to me convinced they cannot read and the frustration on their faces is heart breaking. They range in age from Kindergarten to 5th grade. This community is a high poverty area and we are a Title I elementary school.

My students do not get exposed to literature and their vocabulary and understanding of the language suffers. I want to help that because Reading is essential to all other subjects and to all walks of life.

My solution is to create a Listening Center, and my goal is to excite them about Reading and engage them in listening skills that will take them out of their circumstances. I want the world and its possibilities to open up to them through multiple opportunities to read and read along and thereby instill the love of reading - even when they feel they can't read.

I would like to have a CD/Cassette player for my center. I also need two sets of listening, read-a-loud books with CD's for my students. I have chosen a player and the high interest sets of Dr. Seuss and a Phonics Literacy Set. Your kind donations will help me in my endeavor to enrich the lives of my students. Your help will make it possible for my students to rise above their poverty and learn what they need to succeed.
