Wausau classroom nomination

Through our Wausau literacy program, I strive to motivate all of my 5th grade students to enjoy reading. With all students at different skill levels, mainly low, it presents challenges because the students' frustration stems from the inability to read. Some will give up all together on reading because of the frustration. I have wanted to purchase a listening station (CD player with multiple headphones attached) and books on CD for this reason, for quite some time. Along with using this set to motivate life-long readers, I plan on incorporating these listening opportunities into my unit on teaching Expressive Reading. We will use the readings on the CDs to analyze traits of effective reading and improve our own reading out loud. The CDs also help the students read words they may otherwise skip over because they can't sound them out. They also make a long, detailed section of the book more accessible for understanding. I would be so excited to receive this money to incorporate all my connections with the listening station and CDs. Thank you for this program and considering my request.
