The Daily Five: Focus on Listen to Reading

Hi Friends.
I know when I started The Daily Five I really wanted to know how other teachers were organizing their classroom and materials.  One thing I discovered was that everyone had their own way of doing things.  Below you will find a few ideas from my classroom about organizing and executing Listen to Reading.

I do have a fairly large listening library which includes books on cassette and books on cd.  I have purchased everyone of them through scholastic book orders.  If you do not have a listening library, check out TumbleBooks.
Let me know if you have any questions.


  1. I was just complaining to another teacher today about how my kids STILL can't keep the books and tapes together at the listening center and the year is almost over. I totally had an A-HA moment (and a DUH! moment, too!!) when I read this post! I have TOO many books out at one time! I'm going in tomorrow morning and taking all but 5 books out of the bin and see if that helps! Thanks!

    1. I hope it does help. I'm sure you have enough to do without having to organize your listening area everyday.
      Have a great week

  2. Your organization for this is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing! I am a new follower!
