This pack has come in handy when I have been teaching my class using Teams during lock down. The children have told me they enjoy our Wednesday listening sessions, I get most kids joining me on a Wednesday. Thank you for putting together such a great, accessible pack.
This is a wonderful pack; I am so pleased with it as I have pupils with a variety of ability in listening skills so I can use these wonderful resources to meet the needs of all different pupils within the class. Love them, thank you, very much!
Such a good resource to have. Last year, my class looked forward to completing one activity every week which really helped with their listening skills.
This listening pack contains everything you need to provide consolidation and challenge for any class. My pupils are 9-10 years old and thoroughly enjoy the activities available. The drawing challenge provides a good warm up which I then follow with one of the story challenges. Having differentiated answer sheets makes organisation within the class very easy to manage. I use use these as an assessment tool also as it is very interesting how some more able pupils can struggle to accurately recall important information so these activities are good for providing challenge for these pupils. A colleague who was passing my class came in whilst we were doing these activities and was very impressed-so maybe another Teaching Packs member to come. Thanks for providing the audio files and follow up in such an easy to use manner.
I downloaded this pack a little while ago and have been using it ever since! My class love the drawing challenges and you could hear a pin drop when they are listening to the next instruction - it gets very competitive! I have also used a variety of the other challenges during small group intervention work, which has been particularly useful for children who need to improve their concentration or their ability to follow a set of instructions. They love taking part and don’t realise that they are developing a skill at the same time as having fun! Thank you for creating such a brilliant pack - it’s not something I have seen anywhere else, but it’s been an invaluable resource.
Have just downloaded your Listening Skills pack for two new pupils and I am delighted to see the choice and progression included. Additionally it will be a real bonus for another pupil who is slightly older but needs to focus his listening. The stories will be fabulous for him. Thank you very much for producing a well thought out , well resourced and motivating resource. I will be using it today! Excellent!
This has been so helpful with my students and they really enjoy this.
Thank you for this pack. It has everything you need to help your class improve heir listening skills and is very useful for small groups too. The audio track as well is an unbelievable added bonus
Thank you for some great resources. The fact that they have the audio track as well is an added bonus. I am using them for my Tutor group once a week as they have auditory memory problems. The variety of activities and resources is excellent value for money.
I've been looking for activities like this for ages, but anything else I've found hasn't been quite right. This is perfect for me, a PSA or a supply teacher to do with the class (and will also be good for older learners with specific issues in listening/following instructions)and it has everything, even down to a sound file with the instructions! The fact it's the computer, not the adult reading the instructions will really force the children to listen, as there can be no 'oh, can you just tell me number 3 again?' A brilliant resource, thank you.
