What better way to create fluent readers than a listening center! We have a beneficial listening center with a tape/CD player, tapes, and Cd's but lacks the most important resource: BOOKS!
I teach all academic subjects to a wonderful group of kindergartners.
My students are spunky, love to sing and dance, and always have the best questions when it comes to learning! I have been developing lifelong learners for 3 years at an "A" rated school. My students bring great family involvement and a strong support system to the classroom. In return, I have been so privileged to share a wealth of resources with my class this year. However, I wish I had more to offer them at our beneficial listening center.
In our classroom, I was extremely happy to find many listening center tapes and Cd's stored in our cabinet. After I spent hours searching, I found that these tapes and Cd's did not have books to accompany them. I am requesting 2 copies of 8 children's books that match the tapes and Cd's I already have for our listening center. These books will allow my students to work independently and quietly at one of 6 centers while I foster reading with my 5 reading groups. During guided reading groups, I am able to give individualized instruction to meet the needs of my students. Differentiated instruction is key for academic growth and having a listening center will give me this opportunity! Additionally, my students will gain a great deal of reading practice at our listening center! Listening to books on tape allow my students to hear modeled fluency and expression. The center will also foster independence, listening skills, and books talk.
I am very excited about creating a listening center for my students this year and many future kindergartners!
They will leave my class with a greater understanding of reading and listening to stories for fun! When they understand how to use fluent expression and excitement while reading, they will be ready to pick up a book every day for years to come!Read More
