Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello! I am a second grade teacher at Park Manor Elementary School. Park Manor is a school located in the inner city of Chicago. The students are 100% African American. I would like to submit a proposal for materials for my listening center. I have students in my classroom that have poor listening and reading skills. I feel exposing the students to the listening center on a regular basis would aid in refining their reading as well as listening skills. The students would go to the listening center and listen to the story on cassette. I feel this would help them with phonemic awareness, word recognition and pronunciation. The students will have to complete activities pertaining to the story they heard. This would refine their listening skills because they realize they have to listen carefully in order to complete the activities. The listening center would also increase comprehension skills and enrich vocabulary. I feel the activity would provide a rewarding experience to every child in the classroom. All students would use the materials. It would greatly benefit the students, especially the auditory learners. I would need cassettes and books for the listening center.
