Not Your Traditional Listening Center

My students need 4 iPod Touches with headphones and cases to use during center time for a listening library and during their reading stamina time.

My Students

The majority of my students come from a low socioeconomic home. They deal with not only their own "little" struggles daily but sometimes they have to deal with "big" struggles, struggles they may not even understand. You would think this would deter them from coming to school, but it doesn't. They come to learn and grow.

My students are special because they are bursting with imagination and discovery.

They are curious and inquisitive thinkers. They are dreamers and visionaries. They are mathematicians, authors, artists, scientists, explorers, musicians, athletic, and so much more! The future looks exciting when I look at my students!

My Project

To help build the love of stories, adventures and information, I provide the opportunity for my students to listen and/or watch books on varied electronic devices.

Throw out those cassette players and tapes and CD players and CDs; We're moving into the 21st Century!

Listening centers today are more than listening to a story and turning a page in a book after you hear the beep. Having the iPods will give the students a chance to interact more with the text and other content throughout their day. I will be able to download specific stories and/or content for the students to practice independently.
