If you teach 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or higher grades, you may want to consider dipping your toes into the world of...PODCASTS in your class!
I am definitely a late bloomer in this area and am starting out by pre-listening and selecting Podcasts that are under 10 minutes for students to listen to. Students do NOT have to listen to the entire episode.
The focus really is for students to practice listening and taking notes since the state assessments has a portion dedicated to listening for comprehension.
These templates provide a place for students to record notes, thoughts, and ask questions. Please feel free to give me feedback.
