Listen to Learn! Learn to Listen!

1/06/2015
​The School Wide Positive Behaviour focus for this coming fortnight is the buzz words of "Listen to Learn! Learn to Listen!"".
 
This means that to be respectful students will:
 
  • I use whole body listening
  • I listen without interrupting
  • I raise my hand if I have a question or don’t understand, but I wait until the person speaking has finished

 

As part of class activities teachers and students will discuss and consider:

  • What it means to be a learner
  • Demonstrating / discussing what active listening looks like in the classroom / playground / lining up etc
  • Playing games that encourage active listening eg. Chinese whispers, guess the mystery sound
  • Using descriptive encouraging statements to highlight  the desired skills being demonstrated by students
