Create a Listening Center

audio books for homeschooling

This week, I added a listening center to our homeschool. It was very simple.

All you need is a CD or cassette player (with a headphone jack) and audio books. If I want to spend some time alone with one of the children, I can put another child on a beanbag or quilt in our little library, listening to a great book. If I need some time to use the restroom, I can let all the children participate together. If another child is distracted by the audio book and cannot work, I plug in the headphones.

When I want the child to visit the listening center during our homeschool time, I just put a card in their workbox, telling them where to go.

Audio books can be found at your library or purchased to start your own library.

    Thank you for this! It seems simple, but creating a dedicated space for listening is just what I need to do to make our audiobooks more accessible.
