Listen Up 2...Yahoo!


Yes, you are seeing double...
It's Listen Up 2...
More Auditory Activities for Little Listeners!
The sequel to our BEST selling Teachers Pay Teachers unit,

You've asked...We've answered!
Thank you and your principal too! 
Our class also loves working on listening skills with our Listen Up activities. So much so, they blazed right through them.
And, we still have many weeks of school left to go!
So, we needed more...
Listen Up 2 Includes
-2 Listen Up 2! Binder or Folder Cobers 
color and black and white
-Listen Up 2! Instructions for Use
-2 Listen Up 2! Class Posters
-25 Differentiated Listen Up 2! Directions Cards
-25 Listen Up 2! Print and Go Lesson Activities
-CCSS Tracking Sheets
-Listen Up Rubrics
-Self Assessments

Listen Up 1 and Listen Up 2 can be used at any time. They don't have to go in order and you can grab either or both sets to keep the activities going most of the school year through. 
We keep our Listen Up activities in a binder, tucked in sleeve protectors which makes it super easy for grab and go copying and using in class. We just read the instructions aloud straight from the binder. You could also laminate and use a wet or dry erase marker to check off as you go.  
Our class has come to love this poster...We post it as a sign that's it's time for Listen Up! 

They cheer, then quickly dig out their pencil and crayons and get silent...They really are being well trained. We are very pleased with their progress and exceptionally excited that we are not repeating ourselves as much in other parts of our day. 

Now we just say, "Listen UP!" and they are like Pavlov's dog...salivating for our next words. :)
They were doing so good, and we were getting a little bored with mundanely chanting, "Listen, Think, Do...Listen, Think, Do..." 
We were zombified...
So, we mixed it up a bit and wrote a "Listen Up Chant".
Think Cops TV show theme song...

But, of course they love it! 
We use our best cop voices...It's fun, gets the giggles out, and allows us to focus our energy on listening. 
This Listen Up Chant poster is available for download by downloading our Listen Up 2 preview in our TpT Shop...There's also a free Listen Up 2 student activity and directions card that you can try out to see what all the buzz is about. :)

  1. This is one of the things I had to get in the big TPT sale. :-) I love the original packet and am looking forward to using this one with my students next year!
