Active Listening in Pre-Primary and Year 4


In Year 4 we have been revising the important skills of Active Listening. We have discussed what it looks, sounds and feels like and came up with the following points:

Looks Like:
Arms folded in laps
Legs crossed
Backs straight
Mouths closed
Eyes are on the speaker

Sounds Like :
    One person talking at a time
Calm
Quiet

Feels Like:
We are respected as speakers
Important
Courteous
Kind

One of our favourite activities was to create a poster showing all the important points of Active Listening. We then got to spend some time with our Pre-Primary buddies and teach them how to be good listeners. Our buddies were able to keep our posters to remind them about how to be a wonderful active listener.
