I am a second grade teacher at Chicago International Charter School - Bucktown Campus. I teach a wonderful group of students who are eager to learn! My students absolutely love to be read to, but struggle to read independently. A listening center where children are able to listen to a story while reading the text in a book is a great tool for improving basic reading skills, word recognition, and reading fluency. Listening to the story while following along in the book using a pointer will engage my students in reading and build their confidence as well. When children feel as though they are successful at reading, they are more likely to read independently and at home. I have a listening center in my classroom and have spent hundreds of dollars buying books on tape, but the school's tape recorder does not work, so my students are unable to take advantage of this wonderful resource. The resources included in this proposal will help my students become better readers, and in turn, better writers!
