This morning we had some powerful discussions about how to listen actively.
To be a good listener, we need to...
* Make eye contact
* Put down what we are doing
* Ask for clarity (if we are unsure of what the speaker is asking)
* Ask questions (to show we care)
We realised that it is ok to ask them the person to wait if we are in the middle of something or talking to someone else.
We will be pracitising these skills at school. What about at home? How are your listening skills going?
