Product Description
Our whole school goal this year is to work on Speaking and Listening, specifically SL.1 - Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade level topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

Recently I had the opportunity to work with colleagues to discuss what that standard might look like at each grade level (this was a mighty task considering our school is PK-8!). We had meaningful conversations about what discussion should look like in the classroom. The result was a set of discussion rules and hand signals for participation which are included in this product.

While attending a recent ELA COACHES workshop through the State of CT I stumbled across a graphic organizer titled Listening to Your Own Listening. It was intended to be used by adults to make them aware of their thoughts and how their mind wandered during a presentation. I adapted this organizer into kid-friendly language for use in the classroom. It is a great exercise for students to begin to see what it means to be an active and respectful listener. I also included links to some great presentations given by kids for students to practice using the organizer.

I hope you find these tools as useful in your classroom as I do!
Thanks,
Stacie
