Donors Choose Update

Folks, you’ve started off just fine.  One of our Donors Choose projects is fully funded.   This will allow the purchase of books designed for the kids to take home to read with their folks.  This is an awesome project, but there are so many more, and even a couple of bucks helps out.  Let’s move on to a new project.  Many of the literacy projects are about listening, and the technology available is horrid.  Cassette tapes? Really?

MP3 players would help kids listen to books.  It’s not a replacement for reading, but it’s a step.  Give a little.

    Listening isn’t a replacement for reading, true, but it is a valuable part of learning how to read, similar to how children who are spoken to frequently and well tend to learn to speak faster and more fluently.

    A very worthy cause indeed, and thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    Speaking of listening as learning..are the PalCasts still available? You should put the link to those up again…
