We watched a clever you tube video that has really stuck with the kids. They begged to watch it several times. Once we watched it, I stood in front of the class with a few bean bags and showed them a complicated clapping and moving pattern to test if they were ready to become a 'Biscotti Kid' .
I reminded them with the words & motions from Biscotti Karate:
They sat and watched me carefully and then tried to copy my movements. It took a few tries but most succeeded. This activity was followed by several listening games and a following direction game.
The next day they completed a Popplet showing me that they understood Whole Body Listening!
We have been learning how to sit in our Mountain Bodies to listen to the daily bell so they were well on their way understanding the importance of listening carefully with ones full attention.
Enjoy the video and their Popplets below grasshoppers.
