Learning to Listen Linky
How do you teach your children to be active listeners?
I have tried many different strategies and approaches over the years.
I love the whole body listening approach and we use it school wide which helps children to become familiar with the strategy in various settings at school and from year to year. Being consistent with your expectations in general via an explicit system helps everyone to access learning fairly.
I have also used 'The 5 L's of Active Listening'. I am unsure who created this but know that many schools use the approach in their classrooms.
I have also collected all of my social skills resources in one MEGA Pack, that will help you implement an all round social skills and active listening programme in your room.
Here are some books I love to read to my students about listening.
The teachers at my school know that I am a stickler for social skills. I enjoy teaching children to be mindful and active in their participation each day.
Do you have an active listening approach that you would like to share?
