My fabulous 1st-grade students are hard at work building fluency skills! They love listening to audio books to hear fluency being modeled to help improve their own reading ability. They come to me having learned basic literacy skills and are excited to grow and become independent readers.
My students are enthusiastic learners with a love for books!
Listening centers also provide a way for students to access literature and enjoy books. Each day they will have the chance to listen to a CD and follow along with a book.
My 1st-grade students come to me with basic literacy skills eager to learn to read! There are numerous benefits that the classroom listening center brings to students. The center will be used daily by a small group of students. First graders love to be read to each day. You can see the excitement in their faces!
By donating to my project, you will be helping to fund a listening center that would enhance the students' reading ability.
You will be helping to expose all of my students to different types of storytelling regardless of their reading level. These items will give my students opportunities to enjoy stories being read to them daily. Research shows listening to stories read aloud increases reading comprehension, motivation and self-confidence.
