Active listening

As we mentioned in previous blog posts, listening is a learned skill and involves distinct components which need to be taught:
  • good sitting
  • good looking
  • good waiting
  • good thinking
This is an example of using a puppet to teach 'good sitting'. This was the first time we had done this in this nursery with this group of children and I was delighted with the results.
