I Can Hear Myself Growing!

My students need 5 Voice Recorders, 18 tapes, and a pair of headphones.

I teach Second Grade in a high poverty area. My students come from various backgrounds. Some are very deprived of motivation or are worried about home while at school.

My students need all of the help in reading that they can get. I am dedicated to making them successful and doing anything I can to motivate them. I am constantly searching for educational tools that will be entertaining.

My students need voice recorders. We will use them everyday to read into. If my students can hear themselves read, they can pinpoint what they need to work on. The recorders will motivate my students to read more fluently.

You will make it possible for my students to improve reading and fluency. Their own reading will guide them to strive for the best they can be. My students will be able to see their own improvement and this will motivate them more than anything else possibly could.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
