Mrs. Roberts from Wrightstown WI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tell Me a Story and I Will Listen

My students need a classroom listening center with Boombox Radio, CD, USB, Cassette Player with Tape and CD to MP3, and books with CD like Funny Read-Along Book and CD Set Harry the Dirty Dog, Barefoot Book and CD Set, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and a few other CD/Book sets.

My Students

My students come into our classroom each day full of life, full love, and full JOY! These early learners are the youngest students within my school district. I teach two sections of 4 year old kindergarten with a total of 36 students in all. Student are enrolled in a full day educational program and attend school two days per week.

Our classroom is filled with students of different cultures, many of who are English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and students who come from all walks of life.

In our classroom we embrace each others differences, and learning styles in effective and engaging ways. We thrive to work together to promote the success of all students, especially in the development language and literacy!

My Project

My students take pleasure in listening to stories being read to them. I read aloud to my students everyday putting on my best voice for the latest story to be told. However,

there is something special about listening to a narrator embellish their storytelling abilities with silly voices and engaging sound effects.

My students need a classroom listening center with Boombox Radio, CD, USB, Cassette Player with Tape and CD to MP3, and books with CD like Funny Read-Along Book and CD Set Harry the Dirty Dog, Barefoot Book and CD Set, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and a few other CD/Book sets. This is why I hope to include a listening center as part of my weekly literacy rotations and as a student option during choice time. My current technology is outdated and is not compatible for use with multiple headphones. I would love 1-2 CD players that can accommodate 4-6 students listening to a story book at the same time. This would enable my students to share in the reading/listening experience with their friends as they follow along with the pages in front of them. To make this possible my classroom listening library also needs a variety of books on CD with multiple copies of each book. You can help by donating to this project so my 4K students can have more adventurous listening experiences.
