I can listen! {Freebie!}

Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you all are having a great school year! I am loving my new group of kids. We are already into our third week of school and the wiggles are coming out! (It doesn't help that it is still so nice and sunny outside.) I've been telling my students to listen with their eyes, ears, and hearts since I first started teaching almost 4 years ago. I learned this from a good friend (I was her long term sub way back when). Anyways, I have finally made a little printable to go along with this saying and I'll be posting it in my classroom soon! Hopefully this will help keep them focused!

You can download this freebie {HERE} or click on the images below. 

You can post these listening rules as a one page poster or a four page layout!

I also love to read these books when reviewing classroom rules and listening:

How do you control the wiggles in your classroom?


  1. I read My Mouth is a Volcano to my littles on Friday. They are definitely getting more comfortable. These posters are really cute and will be great reminders!! Thanks so much!!

  2. I LOVE the posters. I read My Mouth is a Volcano too. Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker is new to me. Looks GREAT. I'm headed over to buy it. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Interrupting Chicken is another fun book that capitalizes on how interrupting just ruins a good opportunity! Plus, it is so very funny :)

  4. I just added both of the books to my "must have list". I have quite the chatty class this year and I think these will be just perfect! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I think this is exactly what I need right now! I've got a very chatty group of fourth graders this year!! Thanks

  6. Lindsey, I seriously haven't checked your blog for the longest time and decided to see what you were up to tonight! I was so excited to see this post about this saying and then reading your sweet comment about where you learned it from :) I miss you sweet friend.

  7. OMG are you spying on our classroom!!! Our kiddos won't.stop.talking! It's nuts! We just did a post on talking with our pencils instead of our mouths. What is it?! We talk a lot about listening with our whole body so this is fabulous. Thanks girl!
