Listen Up! “Ha’azinu” Deuteronomy 32:1 – 32:52. Being able to listen, especially to the things we’d rather not hear (about ourselves or about others) is never easy. Often we compliment someone by saying, he or she is ‘a good listener.’ How important it is to have someone in your life who will take the time to listen to you! What a challenge to try and become that kind of listener.
Take a walk and listen to the sounds outside. This requires that your students remain silent as you take them on a walk about their school inside and out. Back in the classroom share the different sounds that everyone has heard. Every student should have a chance to contribute. Listen. Every sound has a story.
