My students need a listening center, with a CD and cassette player and headphones, so they can become fluent readers, expand their vocabulary and build their confidence and love for reading.

Don't you love listening to a great story? My students do!
I teach first grade at a Title 1 school where the students come from low economic households.
My students don't have a lot of exposure to reading in the home and come to the classroom with various levels of reading abilities. I am a first year teacher and do not have many resources. A listening center will provide my struggling readers additional support in basic skills needed to be a successful reader.
My students will have a multi-sensory experience with books that models fluent reading with intonation and pacing. They will go on a journey where the story comes alive with sound effects and music capturing their imaginations and growing their love for books.
A new listening center inclusive of a cd/cassette player and headphones will help my students become better readers by increasing their vocabulary, fluency, confidence and love for reading.
