The goal of this project was to develop a comprehensive program for teaching listening skills to kindergarten children which could be incorporated into a given curriculum. The focus of this paper was to identify the basic need of listening skills to the kindergartener and suggest
a plan whereby this apparent deficiency could be addressed. Included are activities that the classroom teacher could utilize to increase the child's ability to listen. Five of the seven basic skills identified as necessary pre-reading skills are considered; listening skills, visual discrimination, visual memory, auditory discrimination, and auditory memory. Activities compatable with the
development of these skill areas are offered.
