Reading with My Senses

My students need a listening center to provide another option for them as growing readers and thinkers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The biggest joy is the look on a child's face as they listen to a book read to them. Each day we have a time for daily read-alouds. My goal is to extend this opportunity with a listening center. We have some resources (books with CDs and/or Cassettes). We just need a unit to store our materials.

My first graders are growing as readers.

Having additional opportunities to listen to a new text or an familiar text will support multiple skills such as listening, critical thinking, and modeling of reading to enhance their fluency. Emergent readers will be able to tracking the print as they listen to the story. Students learn in different ways the auditory learner will enjoy the solitude of hearing a book read to them with a purpose with will develop their critical thinking skills. My first graders will grow as readers when they get multiple opportunities and exposures to reading and being read to on a daily basis.

My Project

Our goal is to use this equipment to develop a designated Listening Workstation. At this workstation 3-4 students can enjoy the text at a time and small groups will be able to cycle through this workstation throughout our Literacy Block. The equipment has bins that can be designated for each group. It will add additional structure and organization to our classroom.

The only way to have children grow as readers is to give them as many opportunities as possible to read.

I look forward to seeing the excitement and engagement for each of my fabulous first graders!
