Listen to Reading for Fluency

My students need a cassette player and headphones in order to be able to listen to and read together.

My Students

I love that my students are truly at the beginning of learning about the world. They are living in a world in which technology is at an all-time high with so many gadgets and multi-tasking items at their disposal. They are so inquisitive and want to learn all they can, all while having fun.

My students have a desire to learn in their own way and at their own pace.

They want to be able to have their own space in which to learn without always having to give up what they've been given. We are a Title I school and all students receive free breakfast and lunch here. Some of the students I work with have had very few experiences to share and I only want to give them a place to learn and grow without hampering their creativity.

My Project

The specifics behind my project order are to allow my students to learn together while listening to reading. Many students will be reading at the same level and by allowing them the opportunity to listen at the same time to the same book through the use of the portable cassette recorder and splitter/headphone combination- they can collaborate on what they learned about the book and discuss characters, setting, plot, etc.

Building fluency in children is of utmost importance so that they can gain a better understanding of the written and read word.

Many students in my grade level lack this skill at first and by hearing someone else read to them, they begin to gain an understanding that their own reading should sound like talking to someone. This leads to more fluent reading skills and better comprehension skills needed to succeed in life.
