My Students

I love to read books to my students, but allowing them to read along with a book in a center is truly wonderful. They begin to act out and figure out details of books, learn new sounds and how to inflect feelings with their voices. Right now we only have 2 books on tape in our center. Please help.

I am very fortunate to have a group of 12 amazing first graders with various learning needs.

They are at various reading and learning levels, but all love to use the computer and tape player to do their listening center work. They have grown tremendously since last year into confident, kind and caring 1st graders. I am so proud of them and know they would appreciate this collection immensely.

My Project

A listening center with a variety of books would allow them to explore books in a new way. They would hear new voices that would help to reinforce language, reading and comprehension skills. It would allow for another learning center which they so desperately need in order to guide lessons and learn independently as well as in groups.

My students bring so much joy into my life, and I want to do the same for them as well as my students in the future.

These books, Cd's and cassettes will allow a new way of learning and understanding books and reading.
