Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My second grade class is made of 22 amazing children. They range in diversity and ability, some of whom are autistic and many who receive special education services. We are a Title I school, and all of my students are from low-income households, so they all receive free breakfast and lunch every day.

Though their backgrounds have offered them little advantage, my students love learning, and they work very hard each day.

One of the things they love is our listening center where they come together with a few friends, open a book, and listen to the story read to them on a CD player. I did not anticipate how much they would love this station that improves their listening, literacy, and fluency skills, so we need more story selections.

My Project

My students absolutely love reading, in all forms. Whether reading independently, with a friend, to a stuffed animal, to me, in a group, or along with a book on CD -- they're in! We started the year with a small assortment of listening center packs, but at this point in the year, they've read them all.

To keep them interested, I'm requesting more class packs of books with accompanying CDs.

The books I've chosen are a bit too difficult to read alone, so having them on CD is perfect. Plus, these books are high-interest, meaning my students will look forward to reading them when it's their turn at the center.
