Listening Center Activity

At the listening center, students listen to and reflect upon quality literature, at and above their independent reading levels.  Many times the children have their own books to look at while listening, but sometimes two children share a book.  These listening center response worksheets were created with consideration to the first grade Common Core State Standards: Reading - Literature and Foundational Skills; Writing; and Language.


 
After listening to an audiobook at the listening center table, the students move back to their table seats to complete written responses independently.
 
This shows two of our table 1 friends sharing a book and listening to the story together.  They were listening to Sammy the Seal by Syd Hoff.  (This book is a DRA Level 13-14.)
