Practice listening skills and following directions by having the children walk in various ways (stomp, glide, slide, clomp, tiptoe, etc.)
Read the book I Went Walking by Sue Williams. Go for a walk and then have the students create their own version of the story. Each page should begin “I went walking. What did I see? I saw a (name an object and its color) looking at me.”
Read the book When the Elephant Walks by Keiko Kasza. The book begins “When the elephant walks he scares a bear who frightens a crocodile…” and so on down to a little mouse. Have the children make up their own version of this silly tale reinforcing size, big/small.
Read The Listening Walk by Paul Showers. Take your own “listening walk” and list all of the sounds the students hear.
This is an example activity from my Letter W Unit – Differentiated Letter Writing Pages and Activities.
