Help me give my students a listening center with 6 pairs of headphones and a few new stories to fall in love with.

My Students

Our classroom is a culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse space. Our school is placed at the center of a low-income community that is home to many young learners of English. My young learners are working very hard to adapt, persevere, and thrive in the school environment.

My students have many valuable experiences and rich cultural backgrounds which they bring to the classroom each day.

Our district and our staff members are passionate about providing an equitable education and safe space for all students.

My Project

I am excited to offer my students many new stories in an engaging and cooperative format. However, in order to create a listening center for my 2nd grade classroom, we are in need of some technology! A cd player with headphone splitter and six sets of headphones will enable my kids to share their listening experience. Sharing this read aloud station will build increased engagement and collaborative learning.

The listening center will allow my students to listen to educational read-alouds during our daily 5 instruction.

These read-alouds will be paired with workbook activities that will engage them and build comprehension skills.
