I work for a low socioeconomic community on the south side of Chicago, in the Engelwood neighborhood. My first and second grade students often overcome great obstacles to achieve in school throughout the year, including low levels of parental involvement at home. My classroom learns valuable lessons through reader and writer workshops, where we develop a sense of pride in our reading and writing work. An IC voice recorder could do so much to enrich these workshops. First, I could record stories we have read in class and put on a CD for our listening center. Second, I could have the students record their own reading and stories that they have written! We could make CD's of each child's reading and writing!! This would be a cheap way (minus the actual equipment) for students to take home something they can really be proud of. Thanks for reading!
