Listening to a story being read to them is a great way for children to develop a love of books. Using a listening center allows children to hear a story independently or hear a second / third reading of a story.
Those who read more, read best!
Children can learn by reading to self, reading to someone, or listening to someone read. Following the listening, children can reflect on what they heard, retell the story, answer questions, or draw their favorite parts.
Many students are auditory learners and can truly benefit from great literature pieces being read to them. Keeping headphones in working condition is hard to do. Sets are usually hand me downs from years past. Please help our class have an organized system of storing and keeping headphones in good working condition.
Readers are leaders!
They are able to follow along with the story with an accompanying book. An organized listening center will allow children to go to the center to find headphones and a player that works. Lakeshore Learning has a wooden storage bin that allows children to choose headphones, listen to a story, and replace in a systemic way. What a great way to keep listening center an inviting area of the room to visit!
