Our grade level would like to develop literacy stations during language arts centers through the use of MP3 players and audio books. Our team would like to purchase 5 MP3 players per classroom ($21.64 per player). In addition, we would like purchase audio books through downloads of leading books and series (ex. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) ranging in price from $10-$20 per download. Audio books provide essentials to literacy tools for students who struggle with language arts, have auditory and attention issues, or for students who want to experience literature in a multi-sensory way. Audio books and literacy centers provide all the researched benefits of reading aloud to students in an independent way.
