My Students

Did you love story time when you were little? My students love listening to stories. They often beg me to read the stories again and again.

My students are in first grade at a Title 1 school in Oklahoma.

This means many of our students are underprivileged and in a low socioeconomic status. Studies reveal that students in this circumstance often perform lower on test scores without extra intervention. My school also hosts the ESL (English Second Language) program where we teach children English. Several students may be the only English speaking person in their home.

My Project

I strive to model good reading and expose children to as many good stories as possible to develop a love for reading. In my 10 years of experience, I have learned that first grade is when reading soars. Guiding children through learning to read continues to amaze me year after year. I want to give the children more. Listening to stories is important to every child and for some, school may be the only place story time happens. School may be the only place English is exposed as well. Listening to stories on CD increases love for READING and comprehension as well as knowledge of English and pronunciation.

I would really like to have this listening station in my classroom so that I can maximize the number of stories being exposed to the students each day.

I have already purchased the CD players and over 100 books with CD's myself, my school has gotten me headphones and I would love to have a place like this for the children to enjoy them. Currently, students sit on the floor around a small TV table I bought at a garage sale. The headphone wires tangle daily and not every child is able to enjoy.
