Lemonade

We introduced our listening center last week.  It’s an antiquated, child-friendly, audio-tape player.  The children love the independence of being able to listen to a story by themselves.  After a ten minute explanation about the “play” and “stop” button and how to care for the headphones, we sent a small group off to listen to “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.”

Oops!

None of the buttons worked!  The power was on, the tape was happily in the machine, but the wheels wouldn’t turn.  No playing, no fast forward, no story. Well, as they say, when life give you lemons….

We found the same book read-aloud on YouTube, but we wanted to make the experience special since they’d lost the use of the headphones.  Enter the mini-theater.

It’s not so quaint as an audio-tape player, but they seemed to like it.
