Center Focus

Who Is That?

  1. To prepare for this center, you will need to record each student saying something into the microphone. You may ask them to tell you about their favorite book or their last vacation. You should record what number the student is before the student speaks. Make sure they don't say their name.
  2. At this center, the students should label their paper from one (1) to the number of students in the classroom. They will then listen to the tape and guess the names of their classmates based on their voices.
  3. Your students will have fun doing this and it is an excellent listening aptitude test.
