Elementary School | Language Arts | Listening

Of all the language arts, listening, as well as speaking, is most often used on a daily basis at home, school and work or in the community. In person, by phone or through video, good listening skills are essential to receiving and understanding messages. To understand messages spoken by others, students must be able to listen carefully, using specific techniques to clarify what they have heard.

Learning Objectives Grades K-2

Listen effectively in formal and informal situations:

  • Listen attentively by facing the speaker, making eye contact and paraphrasing what is said.
  • Ask questions and respond to questions from the teacher and from group members to improve comprehension.
  • Follow oral instructions accurately.
  • Use visually oriented and auditorily based media.

Learning Objectives Grades 3-5

Listen effectively in formal and informal situations:

  • Demonstrate understanding of the listening process (e.g., sender, receiver, message) by summarizing and paraphrasing spoken messages orally and in writing in formal and informal situations.
