2nd Step - Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Week: Attentive listening skills

Kinder and 1st grade is:

  • Ask your child to show you how to make an attento-scope.  Here’s how.
    • Cup hands around each eye like binoculars. 
    • Say “Focus” or “Listen” to switch on the attent-o-scope. 
    • Puts down the attent-o-scope, but pretends it is still there.
  • When you really need to get your child’s focused attention, suggest that your child use the attent-o-scope. 

 2nd-5th grade attentive listening skills:

  • Focus on the person’s words
  • Use self talk to stay focused and ignore distractions. 
  • Don’t interrupt.
  • Ask questions to find out more.
  • Repeat what you heard to show you understand.

Connecting the language teachers use at school and parents use at home strongly reinforces the behaviors!  Thank you for being awesome parents to awesome kids!
