This week in enrichment first graders have been working in pairs to interview each other. Students were asked to draw a picture as a way of reporting on what they had learned from their interviewee. This exercise was a great way to practice listening skills as well as adding details. Students found that they could not draw a good picture to report to the group if they did not listen carefully to their partner. In addition we got a chance to find out some great information about students and their interests through our end of task interview share!
I hope that these listening skills will be applied as we work in various groups throughout the year to collaborate on projects.
