Listening For The Love Of It!

My students need a listening center to better understand and interpret language. Listening to appropriately read literature increases the love of reading.

My Students

Remember the first time you heard your teacher read your favorite story? You could not wait to find the book in the library - only to find that the words were too hard. Make a difference in the lives of my kiddos by allowing them the opportunity to continually hear that favorite book on tape!

We are a first year school opening in NC- the budget is tight, the PTO has not been organized, and "extras" have taken a back seat to the building and furniture budget.

While our children may not need help with daily supplies, their parents have put a lot of time and money into helping us open our new school and they too are running low on funding extras within the classroom. My children would deeply appreciate and benefit from any generosity.

My Project

I am requesting a listening center with headphones. The listening center has a CD player, a junction box to plug in eight individual headphones, and a carrying tote for appropriate storage as well as security. This all-in-one listening center provides everything needed to allow children the opportunity to listen to books on CD or tape.

Through the use of a listening center my students will benefit from hearing stories read with accurate pacing, tone and fluency.

With better understanding of language, students will be able to identify the one-to-one correspondence between letters, notice the change in voice, and begin to identify intonation within written language. It is imperative that children learn to love reading at an early age. With a listening center, students begin their journey of becoming independent readers.
