Learn by Listening

The cost of listening center for this proposal is $265, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am asking for a new Listening Center for my Second Grade Classroom. I have a class of 25 students with individual needs and talents. I have organized my classroom so that we work in small groups of 6-8 students with rotating centers. One of my centers that each group visits daily is the Listening Center. My current Listening Center is old and recently broke beyond repair. The students are heart broken that they cannot enjoy listening to different stories on tape. We have both cassette tapes and CD's. So we are in need of a Listening Center that can play both cassettes and CD's. We would also need a jack box with additional headphones so that up to 8 students can listen at the same time. For many of my students, who are from a low-income area, school is the only place where they are reading. Many students do not have many books at home. It really makes me smile when I see the students so engaged at the listening center each day. Hopefully with your help, I can keep smiling each day!!
