Listening Center for Kindergarten Readers
My students need a listening center to utilize during reading centers.
Many of my students don't have the opportunity to listen to someone read to them at home. Having a listening center in our classroom will be a benefit to all my students and will aid in their learning to read, as well as their fluency and listening comprehension.
I teach kindergarten in a Title One school in Indiana.
Many of my students come from a low income household. Over seventy percent of our school population receive free or reduced lunch. Many students are raised by a single parent or grandparents. Some students have not had the opportunity to hear stories read to them. Hearing how a story is read, with the fluency and intonations can be a big advantage to children learning how to read.
By having a listening center in my classroom, students would be able to hear various stories by different authors. They would be able to hear how words are read, and as they progress throughout the year, they will be able to read along with the story. They will also be able to tell about their favorite parts of the story.
I have an amazing group of students, and I believe this would have a huge impact on not only my students' ability to read, but also on their listening and comprehension skills.
Please contribute to my project and help aid in my students' education.
