I have been back at school for one week now and have been really busy working on routines. We started on the first day back focusing on whole body listening. I introduced a bell that I use each time I want them to stop what they are doing and listen. We played a few games where the children had to stop what they were doing and listen each time they heard the bell. They then thought of what they should be doing with their whole body when they are listening. I created an anchor chart, which I have been referring to ALL week! The children also drew themselves and labelled their drawings to show what good listening looks like. We keep going over the anchor chart and I’m hoping that the expectations are beginning to sink in! What methods do you use to teach listening skills? I’d love to hear your ideas!
