Are you using the Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) curriculum? Have you found that while the listen & learns (read alouds) are rich and engaging, they often lack an accountability piece for students? Look no further! I've created these listening booklets to correspond with the Listen & Learn read alouds. For each domain, I have created mostly "right there" questions that students fill in as we go, while occasionally students will have to answer an inferential or evaluative question. They are allowed to use their note catchers for the end of domain assessment, which provides further incentive to closely listen to each read aloud!
BUNDLE UPDATE: After a year of trial and error with the listen and learn program, I am happy to bring you domain 2-11 listening booklets! Your zip file will include a listening booklet for:
-Domain 2: Classification of Animals
-Domain 3: The Human Body
-Domain 4: Ancient Roman Civilization
-Domain 5: Light and Sound
-Domain 6: The Viking Age
-Domain 7: Astronomy
-Domain 8: Native American Regions and Cultures
-Domain 9: European Explorers
-Domain 10: Colonial America
-Domain 11: Ecology
These booklets go hand in hand with your curriculum! As students are listening closely to your read aloud, they can jot down "fill-in-the-blank" notes about the most critical points of your read aloud. You'll notice that Domain 1 is missing. This is intentional! The first domain, Wind in the Willows, really gets the kids pumped for listening along. I didn't want to interfere with that listen and learn but believe it should be used to ignite excitement!
Looking for other ways to teach the Listen & Learn? My students listen to the story on EdPuzzle completing their booklets with a partner. This allows them to work at their own pace, re-listen to parts they didn't quite understand, and collaborate to complete their booklets.
The Unit Goal corresponds with the "Big Idea" outlined by the Core Knowledge sequence.
Need something edited, added, or removed? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you within two days!
Directions: Print the booklet out two-sided, flipping the paper on the short side. Staple, fold, and they are ready to go.
**THESE BOOKLETS GO HAND IN HAND WITH CKLA LISTEN AND LEARN DOMAINS. THEY ARE NOT A STAND ALONE PRODUCT.**
