Whole Body Listening

Today in Room 109 we have learned about Whole Body Listening.
Whole Body Listening is a holistic approach to listening that helps children understand that we can use the different parts of our bodies to be:
Respectful, Responsible and Safe. 
  • Eyes – looking at the speaker
  • Ears – listening to what others are saying
  • Lips – quiet and showing respect when others are speaking
  • Hands – in our laps, in a safe and still manner
  • Feet – safe and quiet feet, where legs are criss-cross when sitting on the rug
  • Bodies- facing the speaker, staying calm
  • Brains – thinking about what others are saying
  • Hearts – caring about what others are saying
We are learning to: Use our whole bodies 
So that we can: be a good listener
