Description: Students improve their auditory skills as they listen for clues and follow directions by drawing on large-size, illustrated cards with dry-erase markers.
Use an interactive approach to build auditory processing skills. Students draw in response to your directions on 50 full-color, dry-erase pictures. When the lesson is finished, simply wipe off the card.
There are three types of listening activities for each card:
Exclusionary Listening–Listen to a short story and four clues to narrow down which item is being described.
Listening for Directions–Follow concept-based directions. Each card and set of directions targets one concept. The concepts pertain to attributes, spatial, temporal, quantitative, negation, and directions.
Listening for Clues–Listen to clues in short stories to locate an item.
In addition to listening skills, the cards can be used to develop attention and memory, receptive/expressive language, logical thinking, problem-solving, and vocabulary skills. Select the lessons and corresponding pictures based on these categories:
Attributes–Teach colors; shapes; and the concepts of large/small, thick/thin, same/different, medium-sized, horizontal, and more
Spatial Concepts–Includes on/off, top/bottom, inside/outside, next to, left/right, in a row, and more
Temporal Concepts–Target days of the week, months, first, last, today/tomorrow/yesterday, and more
Quantitative Concepts–These lessons include numbers, half/whole, every, few, except, part of, and more
Negation–Teach students to understand "no" and "not."
Directions–Teach the concepts of "other" and "skip."
