I am reading the book now and thinking about how I can implement Daily 5 this year. How do I get started with the Listening to Reading? I don't have any mp3 or Ipods, but even if I did, how do you get all of your books? Do you spend your own money?
I do have a computer....
I need help!
Thanks.

I use computer, smartboard for whole group and yes my own money for CD players. I wish I had bout the mp3 player when I had opportunity. It cost me a lot of money to purchase books. Try your local library website they usually have a website for students to listen to books, storylineonlne is free and AWESOME they have actors reading books to kids.There are some more I am not at school so I can't remember them all. Raz Kids is a website you have to pay for but students get to listen to books at their level.

I asked my parents at the beginning of the year to check their cabinets for any old walkmans. I got 7 different players. Parents have donated batteries as well. I put them in separate tubs for my students. I have tons of books on tape I collected over the years. Soemday I would like to put everything on the computer and transfer to MP3 players. The walkmans were a quick fix for me and didn't cost anything.

I've ordered lots of books on cd from Scholastic over the years. Before, that, I just checked them out from my local library. Can you play cds on your computers? When I had my old computers, that is what we used for our listening centers. Our new computers don't have cd drives, so I can't use them that way anymore. I use storyline online, TumbleBooks, starfall (good for younger kids), and literactive (also for younger kids).

There were a few others, too... I'll have to come back when my brain is working!

For listen to reading in my class, I use student computers and cassette players with books on tape. I ordered them myself with book order points mostly from Scholatic. I don't have any ipods or mp3 players either. If you click on my name, you can go to my website and I have a ton of listening links on there. I also have some Leapfrog materials. I know of teachers who use the Leapfrog TAG readers for listening purposes. You might want to write up a Donors Choose proposal for some listening materials. Good luck to you!

Here is a wonderful listen to reading website the Sisters reccommend:

.http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

There are lots of different levels of books for your kids to listen to on the computer for free! Of course the books are read in a very British accent and they do use some words and phrases that American children are not aware of, but they are great stories.
