Mrs. Elliott from Shelbyville IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Listening Centers Grow Little Minds!

My students need a Listening Center to begin the process of creating this center for my students. In our room I am requesting a floor table and floor seating.

My Students

My classroom is filled with students ages 3-5 years old who are energetic, full of love and empathy, and eager for new experiences.

Students ages 3-5 years old need sensory driven learning through hands-on experiences.

My students learn best through play which develops emotional, physical, mental, and educationally sound students.

We are a Title I school and house multicultural students. In my class students are able to receive several levels of learning that they may not be able to at home.

Literacy development in Preschool students is a necessity to develop students eager for learning through reading. Developing young minds to engage in stories read to them and that are interactive will set my students up for success for now and their future.

We currently do not have a Listeninf Center in our classroom. Funding a table and seating will help begin the development of bringing a Literacy Center into our room.

Imagine students engaging in stories of all types. Flying in a rocket, riding a horse, exploring the mountains, to learning Literacy, Phonics, Math, Science, Social and Emotional Needs, Social Studies, and more!

A simple Listening Center will bring this to my classroom!

My Project

Creating a Listening Center with comfy floor seats in our preschool classroom will allow our students to engage in stories themselves with out teacher support. Students will explore stories of their choice developing their cognitive ability.

Listening Centers have been clinically proven to reduce the characteristics and symptoms associated with:

Auditory Processing Disorders

Autism & ASD's

ADHD

Sensory Integration Dysfunction

Dyslexia

Language Delay's

Learning Delay's

Allowing students ages 3-5 to engage in stories and other multimedia engagement will enrich and develop their minds.

Students will be able to engage in books and other Literacy manipulatives of their choice and develop cognitive and self regulation skills needed.
