Lonely Listening Area Seeks CD Player, CDs & Listeners

My students need 16 CD read-along book titles with a CD player, 4 headphones and a junction box.

  • $645 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

We're a 1st grade community of learners in a NY public school, doing our best in this time of budget cuts.

I have sectioned off an area in our room for a listening center. The area currently has a little bench, 3 books with matching CDs, and a small boom-box (that doesn't always cooperate).

1st graders really enjoy listening to stories that may not necessarily be able to read on their own. A working CD player hooked up to a junction box, would allow 1 or 2 students to enjoy listening to a story and read along with the book.

A listening center would allow these 1st graders to continue to make print-sound correspondences, improve their reading skills, and read for enjoyment.
