Listening Center for Early Literacy!

My students need a listening center along with headphones where they can hear themselves speak and a set of read-along books!

My Students

Reading books to children is imperative for literacy and language development. Each week, my students surprise me with how much they can learn, explore, and remain engaged when our classroom materials are presented in an organized, inviting manner.

My students are 3 - 5 year olds with a range of special needs and disabilities.

The entire classroom is students with delays and disabilities from Autism to speech delays and behavioral difficulties. In addition, our school is one of the most diverse schools in the US and is also a low-income population. These statistics rarely hold my students back from approaching play and learning in a dynamic and lively fashion.

My Project

This listening center will be housed in our quiet area which includes a toddler-sized couch, bean bag chairs, and a small bookshelf. During our free play time, my students will be able to choose to listen to a book or practice some alphabet skills. Additionally, we also have a center time when students are assigned different skills to work on at the table. This listening center could also be utilized to work on alphabet and literacy skills during this center time.

Literacy skills are vital for my students in order to prepare for kindergarten.

Having a listening center in our classroom will provide another opportunity for my students to engage with the alphabet, books, words, and language throughout their preschool day.
