Listening Center

Most kindergarten and first-grade classrooms have a listening center. This is a great place for students to listen and hear expressive voices tell a story. For most students, the books located in the listening center are beyond their reading level. In this case, they get to hear fluent reading and build their listening skills. And, we know that listening is a skill that is very important in learning to read.
