I would love to add a listening center to my classroom to help my students have access to engaging and interactive reading materials. The listening center comes with a portable CD player, 4 adjustable headphones, and a junction box with volume controls. I would also purchase 10 story packs which include 10 hardcover books and 10 corresponding read-along CDs. This technology will help to improve my student's reading and writing skills, reading speed, and comprehension. It will also help all my students by getting them excited to read and give them access to materials they feel confident in using. These are important skills that many of my students are struggling with. Many students never choose to look at books or use the classroom library because they say "I can't read". My students all love technology so if they had a listening center they would be able to enjoy books and improve their listening and reading skills.
