We all know our students could use practice listening!
The Common Core certainly believes this to be necessary. Common core standardized tests such as Smarter Balanced specifically require students to listen to spoken passages and demonstrate their ability to comprehend, interpret and apply information derived from spoken text.
This bundle contains five texts that students can practice their listening skills on. Students are provided with space to take notes while they listen. Then they answer a variety of multiple choice questions about the passages they listened to and answer an essay question.
The texts included are:
1. Dandelion and Clover (literature)
2. A Day at the Bronx Zoo (literature)
3. Bunches of Bridges (informational text)
4. Kristen and the Ants (literature)
5. Strong Women of World War II (informational text)
Please note this product does not include an audio recording of the texts. The teacher will need to read them aloud to complete these assessments.
Common Core Standards covered by this bundle:
Determine the main ideas and supporting details of a text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
Ask and answer questions about information from a speaker, offering appropriate elaboration and detail.
