Permanent Center: Listening Center
Click on the picture

Do you feel like you have too much to do and not enough time to do it?  One way to give yourself a little extra time is by setting up permanent centers.  The format of permanent centers remain the same all year, only the content changes.  You save time by not having to explain the procedures each week, not getting interrupted during your small group lesson with the inevitable questions about the center, and by knowing what you're going to do with your permanent center(s), you save time planning.

I use Storyline Online all the time with my kids! It's their favorite listening station (when the computer works).

Great idea for listening center. I've only used books & tapes because we lack the computers to do it online, but I might switch out my computer center & do this every other week. We've used Storyline Online as a whole group, but it would be great as a center too.

I had never heard of Speakaboos. I think my kids will like it! I really like your Computer Station form. Is it available for downloading? When I click on it, it says there is an error.

I also use my computers as my listening station. When I tried to click on the response sheet, I also got an error message. :(
