Have You Heard A Good Story Lately?

My students need a complete listening center. This includes a boom box, headphones and a six station junction box so more than one can listen at a time.

My Students

Do you remember the last time you heard a good story? You wanted to share it with everyone who would listen. My students also want to hear a good story . But we need your help in order to make this possible. Did you know that when students are exposed to good literature they become better readers?

A good story can open up the world to them.

My students live in a high poverty area of Brooklyn, New York. The classrooms do not have all the equipment they need in order to ensure a good education for the students. Books are a valuable object. As a Kindergarten teacher I would like to instill the love of reading in them at a early age. These materials will inspire them to want to read and begin to take them to the next level,the ability to tell a good story.

My Project

Now I know you will see a lot of projects on this web sight but I know this one deserves your attention. We can change the lives of those around us if we take the time and effort. In order to do this my students need a CD Boom Box Listening Center. My students will use these material during their center time. Most young children enjoy a good story. With these materials they will have the chance to gain new information that they can use in other areas of their school work.

I believe in this project so much that I am already thanking you for your great decision to choose this project.

My students love to read and this will take them one step closer to becoming a member of the I love to read club. Getting them at this age is our chance to improve their lives. Reading opens doors and to think it all started with materials for a listening center.
