My students need two sets of good literature on CDs to hear various authors' interpretations of stories.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our class is focusing on experiencing a wide variety of good literature. Books on CD will allow my students opportunities to hear authors read their stories in exciting presentations. Additionally, our emergent readers will be exposed to proper fluency, pace and intonation. It's a win-win!
We have a wonderful class of second graders from diverse backgrounds.
They love listening to stories, but currently we do not have the technology or equipment to make this possible. Our class includes high achieving students, ELL students, new to the community students, emergent readers and special needs students. We are truly diverse in this class, but we have a strong sense of loyalty and community.
We are requesting various grade level appropriate books with CDs so our students may use a listening station as a rotation during our daily reading workshop. They will listen to works of literature and respond with writing, pictures or an oral retelling.
To develop a child's love of reading, it must be presented to them in a variety of formats.
Listening to stories read will promote excitement in genres of literature, develop confidence in low-level readers, and encourage all students to pursue reading mastery.
