Listening and Reading With Excitement

My students need a listening station where they can listen to awesome stories, with excitement.

My Students

My students are a bunch of six year-olds full of energy and eager to learn. Many of my students only receive learning at school, which is only about 7 hours a day. I want my students to be able to receive all the resources possible so that they can succeed. My classroom is not fully equipped with technology resources. Many of my students were highly affected by Hurricane Harvey but yet they still manage to come to school excited and eager to learn every day. Due to Hurricane Harvey, some of my students are displaced and are living in foster care, some of my students have been forced to move in with relatives, living in shelters, and are being raised by their grandparents, and older siblings. Many of my students' parents are high school drop outs and very young.

My Project

Having a listening station will excite my students. My students will be able to hear their favorite stories and follow along. I chose a few books where the characters show a lot of expression and books with a lot of rhyming.

I notice that many students minds are intrigued when books are enjoyable and show lots of excitement.

So I know that a listening station will be an awesome tool for my students in the classroom.

My students need the opportunities to hear many stories with rhyming and books that are interesting. I know that a listening station in the classroom will be a great addition.
