I teach Language Arts for sixth grade resource students at a culturally diverse middle school. My students are at the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade reading levels. They find reading intimidating and unapproachable! Some are struggling with learning English as their second language, which makes reading even more daunting. I would like to create reading centers for my students. Because they are all at different reading levels, I need to provide books at different ability levels. Rather than reading aloud to the students, I would love to create the opportunity for them to listen to the book on tape as they follow along. Students will benefit from being "read to" as they hear proper pacing and fluency, and will increase their vocabulary and spelling skills by hearing and seeing more words at their instructional level. The listening/reading centers will be used in conjunction with other small group centers focused on literacy. In my class students can read in pairs and share the cassette players and headphones to listen to and read a book. In order to create these listening centers, I will need five cassette players and five headphones. I will provide my own library of leveled (high interest) books, and will have volunteers assist me in creating the books on tape. Having cassette players and headphones available to my students will enable my students to access literature. My aim is to make reading more approachable for my students and for them to be able to enjoy a book rather than struggle to read/decode/understand the words they see.
