My students need a listening center in our first grade classroom, to use during our morning literacy block. They also need 3 sets of Classic Read-Alongs.
Listening to a story is one of the best ways for tiny developing readers to excel in their journey towards being able to read and comprehend books on their own. By being able to listen to one story a day, independently, my first graders would be receiving such a GIFT in their academic growth!
My students are a fantastic group of first graders, living in a very urban setting in a city in Connecticut.
Our school is a K-8 school, with very limited resources. Their lives are tough and they face many personal and academic challenges on a day to day basis. However, they are no different from other 6 year olds-they love learning, playing and being kids. Exposing them to new experiences and technology is hard, but it is something I always strive to do during my 6 years here. The rewards I feel every day are so wonderful and my kids are some of the most loving little learners you will ever meet.
If we had a listening center in our classroom, I would be able to expose my children to a new form of literacy. It would help them develop as readers who are fluent, who understand what they are reading and who seek out new literature to explore. Most importantly, it would absolutely help me as a teacher foster a LOVE for reading and learning in each of my students. In first grade you learn and grow so much. Having a listening center in my classroom would mean so much to my students' futures as bright young minds.
Teaching in the setting that I do-poor, urban, tough-often limits the things I can provide for my students.
I give them all I can, I provide much of what we have out of my own pocket. Sometimes I cannot do that, but it doesn't mean my kids deserve it any less. I would love nothing more than seeing their faces and enthusiasm if this valuable asset joined our classroom. It would be used everyday and it is a gift that would help my students this year and for many years to come.
