Listen Up! Book 1 is an innovative book (with accompanying CD) full of activities that have been designed for use with individuals, small groups or whole classes of pupils in Key Stage 3 or at the top end of Key Stage 2.
Listen Up! contains twenty activities, each with photocopiable sheets for pupils and a script for the teacher/support assistant to read. A CD is also included, featuring recordings of five of the activities performed by professional actors, with music and sound effects to enrich the listening activity. These can also be used as a stimulus for creative writing.
A further 15 scripted activities can be read out in ‘real time’ by the teacher or classroom assistant, or recorded. A record sheet and certificate are provided in the book, to encourage pupils’ self-evaluation of their listening skills and help them in their personal target setting.
There are endless possibilities for using, adapting and extending the twenty activities to achieve a ‘best fit’ for children with a range of abilities.
