My Students

My students are from a high poverty, Title I school. The majority of our students are on free or reduced lunch. Every morning some of our students walk into our school, without their basic necessities being met.

My students work extremely hard, even with all the challenges that they face on a daily basis.

These students have become a family, they celebrate all the successes in the classroom, big and small. My students strive to do their best, no matter what we are working on. They love not only learning, but also teaching their peers and primary school buddies.

My Project

Having a listening center in my classroom will open doors for my students, who struggle on a daily basis with reading. Providing my students with books on CDs will not only allow them to hear different models of fluency​ but also allow them to be introduced to books above their reading levels.

Having a listening center in the classroom will allow my students to be transported through the world of literature, even if the books are at a higher reading level.

With the use of a headphone set used in conjunction with book and CD sets, my third-grade students can engage in a listening center to reinforce listening skills. Providing a listening center for my students will help keep students engaged while reading and help develop the love of reading. This listening center will allow students who think that they can't read a book because it is too hard, to access a wide variety of different books.
