I work in a struggling school in the South Bronx. My students are eager first graders who generally want to learn, although many are distracted by other aspects of their lives. We are lucky enough to have a principal who allocates funds to supply us with phonics and reading materials. I have a fantastic box set of phonics tapes and wipe-off activity sheets, with more than enough for the whole class. We also have boxes of brand new books-on-tape in my closet. Yet they all sit unopened because we do not have a working listening center. I am requesting six portable tape players with headphones in order to take advantage of our resources. A portable listening center will let the students find a comfortable and personal spot in the room to work. It will also allow more students to utilize the supplies at one time. Giving these students the opportunity to connect with phonics and literature will most certainly help them gain confidence and skills as readers.
