Do you need Distance Learning Reading Skill Checks?
Sitting in my classroom thinking about how I could incorporate speaking and listening standards in a meaningful way for my students. When I looked at listening center ideas I knew it had to be rigorous, it had to have student engagement at its core and it had to be sustainable (because teachers have NEGATIVE time!)
These are SO EASY to send straight to students to quickly assess their knowledge of different reading (and listening!) skills!
Double whammy – especially capitalizing on that for distance learning!
This sample actually contains 5 skills and can be used for a month of listening centers!!
How to easily incorporate listening centers in upper elementary?
In my classroom, I wanted a whole rotation dedicated to listening. It was tied to speaking and learning standards in our grade level testing and I needed a way to practice. Reading Skills Checks were born!
I love these listening centers because:
They are self – grading! Easy to assign and get feedback!
5 different stories to differentiate with students, they must listen to book!
Super rigorous test prep questions to prepare for state testing. In-depth text based answers!

How do you hit reading strategies in your listening centers?
Your listening center response sheets are the perfect place to not only hit speaking and listening standards but also READING STRATEGIES! Hit summarzing, context clues, setting, and so much more with the focused rigorous questions with the texts from your listening center.
Without the direct text in front of them, this really challenges students to think outside the box and really justify their answers from what they heard. This skill increase translates across to other subjects as well!
