My Students

My current class brings me joy every day. I have had so much pleasure to be able to teach such a great group of children. I am so grateful to be able to connect with each student on a daily basis and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.

My students are curious, respectful, cooperative and eager to learn.

My school has excellent educators that are committed to educating children. My team is wonderful and we work together everyday to help each other out. We enjoy cooperating with each other and using ideas for one another to help our own students.

My Project

My students will use these materials as part of a Listening Center. They will be able to listen to books on CD with a portable CD player. With the portable CD Player they have the ability to choose their own book and find a place in the room where they feel comfortable listening. This is a great learning experience for them because they can listen to how fluent reading sounds.

My project will make a difference because a Listening Center like this really gives joy to students.

They like having a choice of how they will read. By using the listening center they will be exposed to all kinds of books and be able to hear what fluent reading sounds like.
