The Listening Walk by Paul Showers is about a little girl who goes on a walk with her dad and dog. Along the way she describes all the things she hears on this walk.
Here are some ideas on how to use this language + literacy lesson plan:
-While targeting: story comprehension, retelling, and vocabulary growth
-Simple question-answering skills while using “what” and “where” cards
-While targeting association skills (cards included)
**As an SLP, I personally use this lesson plan in conjunction with Kindergarten McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders Unit 3 Week 2
-Essential Question: What are the different sounds we hear?
-Category: Sound Words
-Theme: Going Places/Sounds
-Targets many different language skills which is great when working with multiple students with different goals!
Lesson Plan Includes:
-Vocabulary pre-test and post-test data sheet
-Comprehension questions and answers
