Let's face it, there are not many effective resources about that can assess listening and oral comprehension skills!
This product is totally unique - you will not find anything like this on TpT! This product contains 20 different magic animal pictures!
How it works:
Students are given an activity sheet that is covered in circles containing random upper and lower case letters and numbers within. It's a little like a dot-to-dot activity, but there is no letter or number sequence to follow. Students MUST listen carefully to the teacher read instructions to join one number or letter to the next and reveal a magic animal picture. Assessing is easy - match the resulting picture made to the model answer on the following page of the book. If the drawing does not match, the student has missed some of the instructions, or heard them incorrectly. Check out the preview page - this rhinoceros drawing was constructed by following the sequence listed when read aloud.
Why purchase this product?
*Better listening equals better learning!
*Engagement in listening and comprehending increases mindfulness – ie. ‘being IN the moment’ and avoiding distraction.
*Listening skills are critically important skills to improve. To improve, you must be able to track progress. This can be difficult! Structured opportunities to practice listening skills must be offered.
*Good listeners are able to apply this skill when communicating and interacting socially.
*Activities are challenging! There’s no way students can predict what the next instruction will be, therefore they must rely on their listening comprehension skills alone.
*Students are able to self-assess their listening progress and success through the ‘self-checking’ page. If their picture matches the example, they’ve stayed ‘on track!’
*It’s fun! When the drawing is complete, there is opportunity to color and add further detail or design.
This is the first listening activity book of an upcoming series of listening books (each with a different theme).
