Students improve their auditory skills as they listen for clues and follow directions by drawing on large-size, illustrated cards with dry-erase markers.
Use an interactive approach to build auditory processing skills. Students draw in response to your directions on 50 full-color, dry-erase pictures. When the lesson is finished, simply wipe off the card.
There are three types of listening activities for each card:
- Exclusionary Listening–Listen to a short story and four clues to narrow down which item is being described.
- Listening for Directions–Follow concept-based directions. Each card and set of directions targets one concept. The concepts pertain to attributes, spatial, temporal, quantitative, negation, and directions.
- Listening for Clues–Listen to clues in short stories to locate an item.
In addition to listening skills, the cards can be used to develop attention and memory, receptive/expressive language, logical thinking, problem-solving, and vocabulary skills. Select the lessons and corresponding pictures based on these categories:
- Attributes–Teach colors; shapes; and the concepts of large/small, thick/thin, same/different, medium-sized, horizontal, and more
- Spatial Concepts–Includes on/off, top/bottom, inside/outside, next to, left/right, in a row, and more
- Temporal Concepts–Target days of the week, months, first, last, today/tomorrow/yesterday, and more
- Quantitative Concepts–These lessons include numbers, half/whole, every, few, except, part of, and more
- Negation–Teach students to understand "no" and "not."
- Directions–Teach the concepts of "other" and "skip."
