Add It In Listening Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 5 pages | Years: F - 3

A set of four colouring pages to be used as a listening activity.

Use this teaching resource to refine listening skills. The resource includes four different scenes for students to use and instruction scripts for the teacher.

After distributing the scene to students, the teacher reads the appropriate script, pausing after each instruction to allow time for students to complete. Students add to the scene in various ways – by colouring, writing words or drawing an item.

As this activity is designed to improve listening skills, the goal is for students to hear each instruction once only.

This activity is perfect to use in conjunction with other speaking and listening teaching resources such as the Is It True? Listening Activity or the Colour Me Carefully Worksheets.
