Mrs. Witherspoon from Simpsonville SC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy, Listening, and Learning

My students need a 6-Person Listening Center with CD/MP3/USB Player and books with CDs in order to begin the journey of listening to books while they learn to read.

My Students

I am a public school teacher where 40-60% of students are on free and reduced priced lunch. My students love to learn and strive to always do his or her best. Being 5 or 6 years old, my students still love to listen and read along to stories. They have an amazing way of remembering stories in order to retell and sequence the events of stories. My students will greatly benefit from your donations because they will be able to listen while learning all at the same time! Thank you for your time and consideration!

My Project

The Listening Center and Audio Books will enrich the lives of my kindergarten students while they are learning to read. My students love to hear stories being read to them, but having a book of their own in hand while they listen to familiar books will increase their curiosity of reading. Reading is a journey that can take a person anywhere in the world.

Your donations will provide this reading adventure to my students.

My beginning readers will be able to take on the world with a book in hand while listening to someone else reading. Listening and learning is the way to make that journey possible! Your donations are greatly appreciated.
