2nd grade teacher Anne-Marie Cavanah used grant money to create a nonfiction listening library in her classroom.
Ms. Cavanah describes the impact upon her students:
“All of my students are benefitting tremendously. It is by far their favorite literacy center and it brings me such satisfaction and joy when they call me over to show me the books they are listening to because they are so excited about interesting scientific facts they are learning. Their increased depth of understanding is evident in their explanations and subsequent writing.”
