I came across this great poster at http://www.socialthinking.com. This is a wonderful way to teach students how to listen! So many times we say, “listen,” but we forget that children need to be taught how to listen.
I like to use this in my classroom with my little ones as I see good listening behaviors. For instance, “the first row is showing me that they understand that a good listener listens with their eyes because they are all looking at me.” Reminders like that, given throughout the class, are great cues for the students and creates a positive classroom climate.
Do you use this? Do you use something similar to this?
