My Students

Do you remember the joy of listening to your parents read you a story? The characters came alive in your mind! As part of our reading block, students should continue to have that opportunity. To provide this for them, we need headphones and a junction box to create a classroom listening center.

My students have a love for learning.

They love to read and do very well, despite coming from a challenging home situations. Our students want to grow as learners and have endless possibility, but sometimes their everyday life can cause setbacks. At our school, we are providing the best opportunities possible for our students to succeed in life!

My Project

My students will use our classroom listening center to achieve higher reading comprehension and fluency through listening to and following along with books at their personal reading levels as well as our weekly grade level story. These resources will also allow literacy groups to listen to books simultaneously so that they can discuss these books within their reading groups and levels.

This project and these resources will provide meaningful interactions between students through guided reading groups.

Students will use these resources to continue to make gains in fluency and comprehension while still encouraging them to continue to have a love for reading.
