"Mrs. S. that was a good story, will you read another?" I wish I could read to them all day and with listening center I can!
My Kindergarten students attend a urban charter school which is very sparse with its supplies.
At the beginning of the year we are supplied with a hook for each child, four tables, and 25 student chairs. Just enough to have 25 students sit at their tables, yet nothing more. My students are eager to learn and I would love to supply them with as much enrichment as possible.
Studies show that there is a 30-million-word deficit in young students who come from high poverty areas. The two iPods and collection of 12 books will be used as a listening center to help bridge this gap. Students will have the opportunity to visit the listening center daily to listen to stories while they follow along in their books. The students will not only enjoying being read to, but they will also enjoy working with new technology in our room! Any step to bridge this gap is a step in the right direction! Will you help?
Your donation would make it possible for my students to develop the skills necessary to succeed in reading and writing.
Your help will give each one of my students the chance for a solid foundation! These items will bring excitement to their learning and will give my students the experience they so desperately need!
