Kindergarten Story Time on CD

Kindlisten1A new “Listening Center” for the kindergarten was purchased through a Foundation Mini Grant this past spring. Mrs. Gooden couldn’t be happier with the new storage center that helps keep all the items together and makes them easily accessible to the students.

According to Mrs. Gooden, “I was also able to purchase more books and CDs. These were all a great asset to our classroom this year,” she added.

As the pictures show, students are able to sit together and listen to a story on CD. Hearing a book read on CD helps them see how the words on the page can come alive in a fluid, expressive way. It helps them focus on the sounds of words read without interruption and provides a model of fluent reading. Audio books also give them an important introduction to listening — a skill they must master in order to learn to read.

The goal is to help build the future of our young learners as we prepare them for the next grade,” Mrs. Gooden commented.
