Following Directions eBook and Audio Bundle

Do you ever have issues with students who never seem to listen to the directions, even after you have given them 3 and 4 times?
I know I have in the past, so I decided to do some listening skills practice activities in order to fine-tune their listening capabilities.
After giving my students a short listening task, I either graded the work (which became an eye opener for some!) or we used it as a teachable mini-lesson on what should have been done better.
On occasion, I even rewarded the student who received the best score as an exemplary way to listen and follow directions. The reward usually involved a little extra computer time or maybe being the line leader for the day.
Sometimes we assume that students know how to listen and that if we give directions several times they should be able to hear, listen, and apply.
Unfortunately some students need to continuously practice that skill, much like any other curriculum strategy.
Following Directions in the Common Core Classroom will not only help your students to be more keenly aware of oral directions, but also help you with expected classroom routines and procedures.
The best part? The activities listed take less than 2 minutes once a week to administer!
Have a group discussion after doing to activity, and you are done in under 15 minutes!
