"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island." — Walt Disney. My kindergarteners and I treasure books and reading.
What I love about my class is the variety of languages, cultures, and academic backgrounds.
Within my classroom alone, at least 9 different home languages are spoken. My classroom academics are diverse, as well. The reading levels in my classroom range from emergent reading--learning the letters and letter sounds--to middle of the year 2nd grade reading. What they all share in common is their genuine love for reading. As their kindergarten teacher, I must nurture this love of reading.
While I am working with a group of students in guided reading or another activity, a different group of students will be at the listening center. The listening center station, book sets, and corresponding CDs will allow a small group of students to independently follow along to wonderful stories, providing them an opportunity to enjoy their love of reading in an exciting, new way. The books-on-CDs have character voices, background music, and fun sound effects that makes reading come to life as students follow along on the pages.
Obtaining these materials will help my young readers with their reading fluency and expression.
Early readers who cannot yet read these books independently, and advanced readers who can, will all be able to follow along and hear these skills demonstrated. All my kindergarteners will gain reading skills and experience reading books in a fun way as they rotate through the listening center.
