Literacy Development

My students need a listening station, cassette player, multiple junction box and headphones to assist with reading skills.

My Students

Can you imagine a dislike for reading because it is difficult? Help my students expand their reading skills and passion for stories!

My students range in a variety of levels, ages, and abilities.

The differentiation in their abilities is both challenging and rewarding on a daily basis. The classroom consists of K-3 students with emotional and learning support needs. They are loving students who require extra supports to feel successful throughout their school day!

My Project

An auditory listening center will allow the students to track and follow stories without the struggle of reading. It will help them to grow their reading skills in a way that is engaging and fun. My students enjoy learning but the daily task can be challenging based on their individual needs. Providing a reading center will give them the ability to choose stories that interest them while listening and following along. It will then create joy and excitement to literacy which they sometimes lack.

This will help my students with individualized special needs create the passion and love for literacy!

It will allow the students to feel a sense of success within their school environment.
