Our International Baccalaureate Elementary School is a magnet school in a large, urban school district. Our children come from diverse social, cultural and economical backgrounds. We work to build a community of globally-minded citizens.
My 2nd graders are constantly inquiring.
They enjoy learning from others, as well as researching more on their own. Making choices is a priority In our classroom, from where to sit to how to present information.
My students want to be able find answers to their questions and investigate about the world around them. Our future leaders are ready and willing to learn, they are just in need of some additional equipment to assist in that endeavor.
My kids love to read. Even though they continue to get better, sometimes books they want to read are too challenging. I selected a variety of books that will allow the readers in my room the opportunity to listen to all time favorites and/or listen to books they want to read, while following along.
Listening to books will help my kids with their own reading fluency and give them the chance to focus on the story, instead of words they may not know.
The books on CD and wireless headphones will also help keep the ability groups at the same place, which will help keep our literature discussions on track.
The love my students have for books is inspiring. With wireless headphones and books on CD, they would be given the opportunity to listen to stories and enjoy them in a whole new way.
