Building character and community with your students is often times more important then the educational piece. A class that lacks character and social skills will have a difficult time during the school year learning anything. I spend a considerable amount of time each year teaching social skills.
This Listening Unit has 9 lessons designed for your students to gain a better understanding of what it means to "listen". Children have to be taught to listen. All the lessons are planned out Step by Step, should you follow it. I have saved you hours of planning time. This is a NO PREP unit, just PRINT, put in a binder and TEACH. There are discussion questions, activities, interactive activities and worksheets to go with the lessons. It will keep you busy for at least 3 weeks!

Included in the unit is also a detailed explanation of Family Meetings, aka Morning Meetings. When you are a class for 10 ½ months, you become a family. Families talk to each other and listen to each other. Family Meetings are a time where students and the teacher come together and make decisions, choices and talk about difficult issues together. These “Listening” lessons are designed to be done within the Family Meeting environment, but can also be taught as a lesson.
This is the third of a series on Character Education. Stay tuned for the next ones coming soon on Self Respect, Encouraging, Trusting and more.
