Communications CP

Greetings communications class,
THIS WEEK AND THROUGH THE END OF JANUARY WE WILL BE FOLLOWING THIS FORMAT-

3-6 grade spoke of listening skills
today in class.
We are using an Amazing book-
-Did You Hear What I Said?-
By Olin and Laura Jennings

“Hearing
Is not
Listening
Listening takes work
It is the cornerstone of communication ”

To bring the point home we took a quiz of our listening skill set and played a game. No homework

1-2 grade is also learning about developing skills in communication We are using the outstanding book,
– Let’s Talk Let’s Listen Too-
By Linda Kondracki

“There is nothing simple about communication skills, and there is most certainty a direct relationship between our communication skills and our success in life” LK

We spoke about giving the facts
AND
THE FEELINGS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FACTS
while engaged in a conversation.

We openly discussed the concepts, and played a game to try and keep this deep topic on a comprehensible level. No homework

K-1
We listened to the audio drama,
and discussed
-Hank the Cow dog-
By Jon Erickson

We played a game to get our wiggles out, and practice our listening skills No homework

Very sincerely,
Jenna M
