This Kindergarten Speaking and Listening unit is a full unit for the kindergarten domain of Speaking and Listening Skills. Speaking and Listening is one of the six domains for ELA. In this domain, students will practice speaking clearly with detail, listening intently with purpose, and carrying on collaborative conversations.
There are six standards within this domain. Each standard has 3 activities that teachers can complete over the course of their specific unit. The activities are written in lesson plan format, too. Each standard also comes with a half-page self-assessment. There are also 3 bonus activities at the end to incorporate into your units as needed.
**If you’re wanting to buy multiple SL grade levels, please keep in mind that the 1st grade set is mostly the same activities and lessons, but with different words, phrases, pictures, and topics.**
This domain is also included in a year-long ELA mega bundle for 1st grade. If you want to save money and buy all the domains at once, check out the year-long set.
