I can't believe it is May already! I have 15 days of school to go and year 27 will be complete!!
Today I would like to share my Listening Center area with you and some tips on making it run smoothly. Here's a picture of my Listening Center materials.
As you can see, I use a 3 tier metal shelf with the books & CDs on the top shelf. I usually have anywhere from 6-8 books & CDs in the tub at one time. Each book/CD is stored in a plastic baggie. I purchased most of my books & CDs from Scholastic.
The headphones on the second shelf are WIRELESS and I can't tell you how much I LOVE the listening center now because of this. NO MORE TANGLED WIRES!!
The third shelf holds the CD player. I have labeled each of the buttons on the player with numbers, so the kids know which button to push first, second, etc. I spent a lot of time at the beginning of the year teaching EVERY student how to operate the CD player and the headphones. It has really paid off. I rarely have someone ask for help.
My students love going to the Listening Center every day. I love it because it's wireless!!!
