Listen Up for Learning!
My students need a listening center with 6 headphones for literacy and guided reading centers to enhance story comprehension and listening strategies.
Creating a thirst for knowledge is what I do everyday. I currently teach a transitional kindergarten class, which encompasses 19 students. Some of my students are repeating kindergarten this year, and we dive into first grade standards during our last quarter. My students are from various ethnic groups and are very poverty stricken. Our school is a community driven school that is continually seeking new methods to help our families and neighborhood. Most of our children find a haven within our school and learning is embraced.
As funding dwindles, we find ourselves having a lack of supplies. We have been trying to find a way to purchase a listening center for the past year and have simply not found the money. This type of resource would greatly benefit our classrooms.
We plan to use a listening center during our primary guided reading groups and literacy instruction. We will be using books on tape to help the children with story comprehension and listening strategies. We will assess the students using fun activities centered around the story they just listened to. In Kindergarten, a listening center is crucial because most children do not know how to read or are in the very early stages of reading.
YOU will make it possible for the children in this community to successfully learn to read and change their neighborhoods and families. Your help will not only be giving but knowing that you have helped mold these precious little minds.
