First graders need to practice their listening skills during the year with specific activities. Some of these activities can include listening to a story read aloud and a speaker addressing the class. The students need to identify key details from the message or story. This is similar to reading a story, but they must use a different method of obtaining the information. In this quiz, an adult will need to read the selection to the student in order for them to practice this listening skill before the students answer questions from what they heard. Otherwise, the student will need to read this story to himself or herself if an adult is not available.
