Mrs. Owens from Ware Shoals SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We're Listening...

My students need these books on CDs for our new listening center. They will listen to the book being read to them while following along in their own book.

My Students

When my students come to me each year, their ability levels are all over the map. I have the very high students to the very low students. Even though it is quite a range, I am still expected to meet each student's individual needs! While I welcome the challenge, it is indeed a challenge.

My students are a great bunch!

They come to school eager to learn new things. These children come from homes that have dedicated parents who sometimes work two jobs or work late at night. Most of my students are on free or reduced lunch. Our school is in a rural part of our state and we receive very little funding, especially compared to larger districts just 25 miles down the road. But my students deserve the very best, and that's what I want to give them.

My Project

When we receive these books on CDs, we are going to put them to work immediately! Our school is moving towards the Guided Reading approach. With this program, the teacher is more of a guide and helps students improve their reading skills. While students are working with the teacher, other students would be working in stations. One of the stations is a listening station. Here the students will be using these materials. I can't wait to have my students use them.

The funding of this grant will help my students to develop their fluency.

They will be able to use the CDs to listen to the story and follow along in their book. Students who wouldn't normally be able to read the book on their own will now be able to pick up those reading skills. Students will gain confidence in their new reading skills and flourish as fluent readers. Funding this project will make a huge difference in my room.
