Listening to Learn

My students need a set of Classroom Classics CD Read-Alongs.

  • $196 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a 1st grade teacher in Florida. I have a room of 28 students who are reading above grade level. My school is a Title One school, our students live in low economic housing and come from difficult home backgrounds. So for many of my students that means that they do not have books read to them nightly.

My students do not have the money to purchase books on tape. These books on tape give the students a chance to hear someone reading with expression many of the books that they love. Giving the students the opportunity to hear books on tape will allow them the chance to hear what a pause at a period or comma sounds like.

Having the books on tape will enable me to have a listening center with many different books the students could choose from. They would be able to listen to a book read in a way that would keep their attention and also show the correct way to read with fluency.

Your help will aid my students in learning the love of reading! They will learn how to become a part of the story and will learn to love reading. This will give them the confidence to go on with their reading education knowing that they can do well!
