Magnify Our Reading Voices

My students need a good portable speaker sound system to inspire them to perform more like natural readers when they practice their fluency through Reader's Theater.

My Students

I teach in a Title I school in Colorado, where I have the amazing opportunity to teach students who just need a bit of a boost to solidify their reading skills.

Often, I look for avenues to teach my students aspects of reading that appeal to other interests, not only to motivate us all, but also to expose us to the fact that reading surrounds us for all of our lives!

My students end up finding their passions in reading, enhance strategies from the classroom, and bring skills from my groups back to their classrooms, as they truly enjoy becoming lifelong readers!

My Project

My students just need a boost to help them become more consistently successful readers. Sometimes this boost is needed in all areas of reading and sometimes not. Many of my students need to focus on becoming readers that sound more fluent when they read aloud, which means that they sound natural and are interesting to listen to.

Actually, utilizing microphones and speakers would not only make performing Reader's Theater more fun for students and teacher alike, but they would also amplify the words in order for students to better self-evaluate when their reading performance is on point or needs improvement.

Thus, taking ownership of their own learning and enjoy doing it!

Wouldn't you get better at something if you could have a good time while practicing that skill? We could even take our practice on the road and perform for other classrooms or adults. We are excited to begin this journey together to improve our skills, empower ourselves, and find our hidden talents!
