Reach for Stars for Comprehension!

My students need more resources for our listening center to gain independence with comprehension.

My Students

My students have very big hearts and truly make due with what they have. For some school is their safe haven from extremely poverty stricken and violent homes. My students are in a very low income community. They are kind and loving but may not get all the things they need. I have more girls than boys in the group I have now and they are very helpful. I have really gotten to know these students well in the last few months. I have already learned that I have children who come from needy families. Some of my children come from split families where they may or may not see one or both parents. I am very lucky to be able to touch these kiddos lives. They are very creative and love to be able to explore their learning world through my classroom.

Each child in the class has his or her own unique personality that has really brought our community together.

They are very creative and are starting to really enjoy the academic world and are improving every day.

My Project

We were very grateful for our listening center but have listened to all the books on CD that were sent to us. The students have gain a wealth of knowledge in comprehension and independence with this skill just by using the listening center. Children who struggle in reading are able to answer comprehension questions and are able to discuss reading skills independently. This increases their self-esteem as readers. I have seen a lot of growth in reading since we received this center in the classroom. We could really use more books with CD's so that we can continue to use this center to benefit student learning in reading.
