Spirit Listening Center with Sound Alert

Item #: 4013-TEMP | Grades K-12

Help students learn how loud is too loud. This innovative learning center pairs Califone's best-selling Spirit Multimedia Player/Recorder with a Sound Alert jackbox and six noise reducing headphones. When the volume played through the jackbox exceeds 85dB, its red light flashes, warning students to turn down the potentially dangerous volume level.

The regular price of this system is $444. Save $276 (62% off) with this special bundle!

The teacher-tested Spirit™ supports reading activities, language learning, ESL and ELL/ELD programs associated with the English Language Arts portion of the Common Core State Standards. You'll appreciate the flexibility in a learning center that's equally versatile for music & movement classes or read-alongs in independent study. The two watts of the Spirit are powerful enough for up to 40 people to hear content in a typical room for whole class learning.

Educator tested and proven in libraries and classrooms, it’s ideal for individual and group listening centers, music & story time activities, literacy groups, ELD and ESL language applications.
