What educators are saying

Useful resource to teach listening skills!! Good visuals and activities to help child understand how to improve their listening skills.
I work with students who have hearing loss and struggle with listening comprehenison. This was a great resources for them!



Listening and learning go hand-in hand. Weak listening skills can negatively impact a person’s ability to learn. Many children need to learn how to listen.

The activities in this Listen and Follow the Directions packet will motivate your child* to independently engage in good listening!
