My students need an audio classroom library to develop fluency and hear fluent reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember what it was like to listen to your parents or teachers read your favorite bed time story or fairy tale? Do you remember how they made it come to life just with the inflection of their voice or the way it opened your imagination to a world of adventure? I want to make this happen for my students.
The students in our school come from a low economic background.
Our entire school is over 85% free and reduced lunches. Most of the students come from broken homes and single parent families. We also have 35% of our students who are considered English as new language learners. Combine these two factors and learning is a struggle for some of our students.
As I prepare for the upcoming school year, I want to provide every opportunity for my students to become fluent readers. I know a classroom audio books Library will provide another avenue for the children to hear fluent reading and allow for understanding of the story. This will also provide an opportunity for them to see and learn their vocabulary in an enjoyable way as they can revisit the text they are enjoying.
Please, as you consider my request for an audio books Library, think of the person in your life who read to you.
Think of the person who opened the doors of opportunity so that you became a successful reader. As an educator I want to be that person for the children in my classroom.
