Refresh student listening skills with a Back to School Listening Skill Refresh Slides and script.

Review Listening Skills During the First Week of School! 

At the beginning of the school year, it is critical to reintroduce your students to the classroom. Yes, they need to know where things are, basic procedures, etc. But, their brains also need a refresher on how to “do school.”


How to Teach Listening Skills in Elementary School…

Our Back to School Listening Skills Refresh Presentation and script are designed to refresh your students’ brains on how to listen and apply oral directions. The teacher script presents a series of scenarios to be read aloud. Once read, the slides present the students with a series of images. Students are prompted to identify the image that represents the scenario that was read.

Through this activity, students will refresh their brains on how to listen closely and remember small details in oral instructions.
