Listening Lessons For The Early Elementary Classroom Curriculum

Age Range: 5 to 8
ISBN: 9780930951825

Help children improve their listening skills, using activities that are directly related to the content of the classroom curriculum in kindergarten through grade three. Dinosaurs, insects, holidays around the world, and other topics are included. Following each listening experience, students are asked to recall facts, identify important details, make inferences, and give explanations. Reproducible worksheets are included.

The 40 listening passages are organised into eight content areas:

  • Dinosaurs
  • Amazing Insects
  • Fascinating Plants and Trees
  • What Lives in the Desert?
  • The Arctic
  • Tropical Rain Forests
  • Travelling in the United States
  • Celebrations Around the World

Each passage is followed by 12 questions. The questions require the child to recall factual information, to explain what was said, and to apply the information in imaginative ways. Questions are organised into the following categories:

  • Choose an Answer
  • What is the Answer
  • What If?

This is an excellent resource for students with communication disorders. It is also an excellent resource for helping reluctant readers to develop thinking strategies that are critical for both listening and reading comprehension.
