Listen, Comprehend, and Color Worksheets

PDF | 1 page | Grades: 2 - 4

A listening comprehension exercise and art activity rolled into one.

Do you sometimes get frustrated with your students’ listening skills? Maybe it’s time to find a resource that provides listening practice in a fun way! A task that only involves listening can be boring, but when we pair it with an art activity, it can become much more appealing.

This activity is not your average coloring sheet! The resource includes:

  • a choice of four pictures for students to color and decorate
  • 4 short texts with related listening comprehension questions for the teacher to read
  • multiple-choice answer sheets for students to use.

How Does This Listening Exercise Work?

  1. Give a multiple choice answer sheet to each student. It does not matter if students have different answer sheets.
  2. Select a text to read to the class. Stress that this is a listening activity and let students know that you will be asking them comprehension questions after reading the text. At no point do the students see the text, the questions, or the multiple-choice answers.
  3. A sample pattern has been drawn beside each multiple-choice option on the answer sheet. Students listen to the questions, then circle the correct answer on their answer sheet. It is important to note that no inferring is required, students need to focus solely on what they hear in each story. The correct answer to each question is written in bold on the teacher’s script.
  4. Check the answer sheet together. The patterns that correspond to the correct answers are used in the next step of the activity.
  5. Give a coloring template to each student. It does not matter if students have different templates.
  6. Students use the correct answers to determine which pattern they will place in each section of their coloring template.
  7. Students color the rest of the template as they wish.

More detailed instructions are included in the resource.
