My students need a literacy-based center to help them improve the weekly skills I teach in a small group setting.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Technology is always changing, but communication has been around since day one. One important way of communicating is through listening. Let's go back to the basics! My students need more exposure to listening to text to improve their comprehension.
I work in a third grade transitional classroom in a charter school in New Jersey.
The students are struggling in many academic areas, and my role is to work in small groups to help them transition to a regular third grade classroom. I strongly believe in literacy based centers, and what better idea than to use a listening center? The kids would benefit from this center because they will practice the weekly skill, whether it is synonyms, cause and effect, or summarizing.
The kids would benefit from this center because they will practice the weekly skill, whether it is synonyms, cause and effect, or summarizing. I can understand how using worksheets and workbooks is repetitive and boring, so let's give the students some headphones and let them listen away! This will boost their enthusiasm to learn!
I strongly believe that this project would help the students listen to learn and learn to listen.
Many of the students do not have the resources at home to further their comprehension skills. If a pair of headphones and some dry erase markers can motivate a student, then what's there to lose? I hope you "listened" to my story, and I know that I will see a difference not only in their comprehension, but their attitude toward loving to "listen."
