|From: First Grade Fever|
This past week I have been mainly working with the first graders at my school. First Graders are so honest, even to a fault sometimes. We have several students who struggle with listening during instruction and following directions.
So I came home today thinking I would come up with some lessons on being a good listener and make a card for them to keep on their desk as a reminder to listen. I LOVED the Good Listener Banner that I found at First Grade Fever a couple of years ago and I refer to often throughout the school year when my class has the case of the wiggles. I want to keep that language and build from there.
I was looking up some good resources to use with this group of students because I do not think my favorite book Listen Buddy by Helen Lester is going to work, at least not yet.
I came across this book Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen. I was so excited that I could ordered it on my Kindle account so I will have it for tomorrow however when I downloaded it a pop up said it was not compatible with and ipad. Now I am out $4 dollars.
However I got lucky and found the story on youtube.
As I was searching around on Pinterest I found Erica Bohrer just posted about Whole Body Learning and she has two wonderful FREEBIES a lesson and a card for the desk and now I don't have to make anything. Thank you now I have more time for reading!
