CLIPBOARD WALK LISTENING ACTIVITY
I often suggest using a clipboard for various activities with young children. There is nothing like a clipboard to make a child feel important!! In our school we often gave little jobs to children where they could use a clipboard, such as finding out who wanted cream cheese on their crackers for snack, or doing a survey – who has a pet, who does not.
If you don’t have a clipboard, you can make one quite easily from a stiff piece of cardboard with a bulldog clip on the top. However, clipboards are often available at the dollar store, and so, of course, are very cheap.
So – a clipboard walk. Simply go on a walk and mark down on a clipboard when you hear whatever it is you have decided upon.
Of course you can adapt the clipboard walk to marking things you see.
