Listening with More than our Ears!

This week is our first full week of school and boy has it been FUN! ;)  My students are learning ALL about school and classroom expectations.  Seriously.... I have the BEST CLASS EVER!  I say that every year, but really... I believe it! They do have a hard time adjusting to 1st grade's full-day schedule (our kinder is still half-day) and sitting at the carpet becomes one big squirm fest!

So... I pulled out some GREAT resources from Erica's Ed-Ventures (Erica Bohrer)! I love her Whole Body Listening posters! Then, I searched for a few books about listening:


Then we brainstormed ways to be good listeners on our HUGE ear! :) Posters below/above the ear can be found {here}.

Then.... we wrote about how we could be good listeners and we made ourselves on our page with our GIANT listening ears!

Thank you for sharing all the links. I have a chatty class this year who are struggling to listen, so I'm going to use these suggestions and resort to my 'only giving directions once so I'm rewarding those who follow the first time' routine.

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
directed to the Priest Abija email below Email: or
you can sent a text message to this number:(518) 303-6207!
