Lucky Listeners

My Students

Students LOVE listening to stories! A classroom listening center will give students the opportunity to enjoy their favorites even more!

It was evident in the first week of school that my kindergarten students absolutely love listening to read-alouds.

They look forward to this part of our day and eagerly check the schedule to see how close read-aloud time is. So far, every genre I've tried has been a hit and this project includes four titles I'm sure they will love!

My Project

This project includes five wireless headphone sets, a special transmitter, and four sets of favorite classroom stories on CD. There are four sets of each story, so that the children can each have their own copy while they enjoy hearing a favorite story read aloud to them!

It is very important to me that my students develop a strong love of books during their kindergarten year.

A classroom listening center is a key element in helping students to see that we read for pleasure and handle books appropriately. Listening centers also provide a comfortable space for children to practice book handling skills, interact with other listeners and hear models of fluent reading.
