Whisper Phones Help Develop Reading Skills
March 2, 2012
Markham students get ready to read with their new whisper phone head sets.

The Mt. Lebanon Foundation for Education funded the purchase of an entire classroom set of whisper phones for Kindergarten and first grade classrooms in all seven elementary schools through a grant submitted by Washington Principal Mary Kay Davis. 

Utilizing whisper phones is a researched based strategy to improve reading results, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and raises phonemic awareness. When children are learning to read and write, learners can, without disturbing others, say every word aloud to hear each sound in the word very clearly.  The hands-free style easily allows students to hold the books and participate in writing activities.

Read more about the grants awarded by the MLFE this year.
