My first grade students love reading! They love listening to teachers read books, but also find joy in reading books on their own. My students are at the age where learners grow in reading by leaps and bounds. As they are learning to read, they have different needs because they are all on different reading levels.
Whisper phones help students focus on their own reading. These materials will make a difference in my students' learning because they can use them during small groups and individual reading time to practice the decoding and reading skills they are learning in class.
When we are in our different reading groups, students can practice reading on their own with their whisper phones while being quiet enough to not disturb the learning of their peers.
When reading on their own, students can listen to themselves read and practice reading aloud with the excitement of using a "phone."
