As part of the whole school social skills initiative, we have been learning about and practicing Active Listening. The children are learning that we use our whole bodies to listen effectively. They have participated in discussions and activities that highlight the importance of listening to others. Together we created a ‘Y’ chart that displays what it looks, feels and sounds like to be an 'Active Listener'. In Year 1, we call them our magic words because the effect that the words 'Active Listening' have are truly amazing!
