My school is a Title I school located near a military base. The students come from various diverse backgrounds. We have 100% of our population receiving free lunch and breakfast. Our students, parents, and teachers are proud of their school and demonstrate their Bobcat pride in all they do! The students rely on their local elementary school to be a strong foundation not only in their educational careers, but in their daily lives! We have very enthusiastic families and students with very little resources. My students love learning and I enjoy helping these bright young minds grow and develop.
My students need a listening center! For this, I am requesting a set of chairs and a table as well as some classic children's books for students to listen to. Helping our classroom with the funds for this project would allow groups of students to listen to stories being read to them during literacy centers while they closely follow along with the words on the pages. As research-based best practices suggest, following along to stories read-aloud greatly improves students' reading as it models fluency, accuracy, and expression at a steady rate. These components are crucial to engaging students in the adventures of texts. My students are also in need of a table and some chairs to use in the listening center as well.
I love reading stories to my students!
However, the experience of reading independently and getting lost in a great book is truly invaluable! A listening center will develop their reading level, push them to grade level texts, and set them on a path for future success as their love for reading is enhanced.
