Did you know that Listening to Reading is a way to become a better reader and writer? When we listen to a fluent reader, we learn how to read more fluently ourselves!
We keep our eyes on text while we Listen to Reading and try to match the words we see with the words that we are hearing. This helps us learn and it is fun!
We get to use a lot of technology with Listen to Reading. We have our iPods that are filled with fun books to read. We also have about 100 books on CDs that have been put on our iPods as music files. We keep the books that go with those in the Tiger basket.
We can also use our desktop computers or the mini computers for Listening to Reading. We have a Sqworl that holds all our favorite sites. Check it out!
