Grants in Action

Classroom Audible Book Project

The purpose of this grant is to establish audible books in each Special Education resource room.  Books that students can “listen to” will allow us to expose our students to a variety of literary genres.

Furthermore, audible books will help to improve reading fluency as well as increase comprehension skills.  These skills are the building blocks that students need in order to become independent readers.

When children hear books read aloud, they learn new words and their meanings, helping their comprehension expand.  Children develop phonological awareness when they hear what fluency sounds like.  They also learn to follow the flow of print on a page.
