What better way is there to show the world around you some respect than to learn how to listen?

Download our illustrated Whole Body Listening poster below.

Shang High the giraffe shows us how to use our long limbs and every part of our body to show others that we know how to listen!

You can use this activity to help kids become better, more receptive listeners. Plus, it's a great way to re-focus attention in Zoom and Teams sessions!



Deep Dive

Read our report on the Science of Reading. Research-based reading instruction must incorporate the 5 pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This report provides an easy to understand overview of each of these pillars and explains the important connection between how the brain learns to read (the Neuroscience of Reading) and how we teach children to read (The Science of Reading Instruction). It also explains why helping children build connections between letters and sounds, through phonics and phonemic awareness, is so crucial for the developing reading mind. This report is perfect for sharing with colleagues and friends!
