Listening Center To Make Stories Come Alive

My students need the Spanish Storybook Read-Alongs and mobile audio pod to make the stories come alive and experience the story on their own creating independence!

My Students

Do you remember having a favorite story as a child and wanting to hear it over and over again? My preschoolers are at that age and thirst to hear stories over and over again.

The majority of my preschoolers come from low income families.

Most of my students are not exposed to books at home, therefore, their vocabulary is minimal. When they first hear a story in school they want to hear that story over and over again. Listening to a story over and over again builds vocabulary and language that is extremely important at this age.

My Project

I am requesting a mobile audio pod and books on CD. Having these items in our classroom will allow my students to actively engage in reading their favorite stories over and over again. My students will be able to listen to their favorite stories on their own and therefore create independence.

This project is extremely important!!

The requested items will help with building my students language skills and create a deeper imagination. I want to create a Love for reading and this is the perfect age to do that! Thank you! =)
