Listening to the World of Books

Help me give my students a listening center to allow them to engage with more books and continue their joy in reading through hearing a book read to them.

My Students

My students are amazing and dynamic first graders who have a thirst for knowledge and love to create learning projects. The students in my class are from a high poverty and low income area of Oklahoma City. My students try their best with the everything that they are given as they continue on the rainbow of learning.

My students love to create their own books, their own animals and anything that can be built with LEGO blocks.

My students love to be word detectives and find hidden words throughout the classroom. They take pride in their classroom even if the supplies are not available. My students love of reading shines through the book creations as they get to be the author and share a story with their classmates.

They love to celebrate all new forms of learning and love to show off their work to their community. My students have high expectations for themselves and huge dreams that they want to achieve. They come into the classroom a the beginning of the year as shy individuals and they leave at the end of the year as teammates and explorers.

My Project

As a teacher of first graders it is incredibly important to give my students every opportunity to have engagement in their learning of words both in print and through listening. In order to accomplish this huge goal it is imperative to have the materials available to the students in the classroom.

A listening center allows students who are struggling with their reading skills to work through a book while listening to it being read to them.

It allows them to grow in their reading confidence level as they learn new words that help to expand their vocabulary.

As they develop their word attack skills it allows them the opportunity hear and read harder books or books on a subject that they enjoy.

It allows them to celebrate the growth through listening and gain confidence that is sometimes difficult for them.
