Speaking and Listening Resources

How do speaking and listening activities benefit children?

Speaking and listening games and activities help to develop attention and listening skills, as well as improving children's vocabulary. They're a fun way of helping children to listen more carefully and intently when someone else is talking. They're great for getting children to speak more confidently as well.

Listening games encourage children to look at the person who's talking and to take turns in conversations. This helps to develop their communication skills and boosts their ability to communicate effectively. While most children know to listen when someone else is talking, it can be a challenge to listen carefully and with intent.
