We were able to use our new listening center today for the first time. Thanks to the Donorschoose.org program we receive the grant on 12/31/2012 for over $500.00 and the table came in just a few weeks. The listening center was used during our ELA center and for some other reading time during the day.
I noticed a huge difference in the classroom atmosphere. Having the right furniture and materials says, “We take learning seriously.” Instead of having to set up the headphones, CD player, and books at the beginning of the center time, we were able to get right to work.
