Below is a SPECIAL OFFER for people who purchased the Celebration Collection! Learn more about how Listening to Learn packets can benefit your children and then grab a free set!
Listening to Learn Packets are a fun way for children, tweens, and even some teens to learn or review information about a topic. And to practice their listening and notetaking skills while they are at it!
Each packet contains sets of directions that parents or teachers read to their children. Each child has a printed picture in front of them and a set of colored pencils to follow the directions that are read. Directions share a fact and ask the child to color, draw, and/or write something associated with the facts shared.

Listening to Learn States
Each of our Listening to Learn: States packets have 20 sets of following directions that teach you and your children about 10 different states.
The first set of following directions for each state is called State Map and has you work with a map of the state to learn about 8-10 interesting places. Learn about geographical features such as islands, coasts, and mountains and historical facts about early settlers or our nation’s battlefields. Find out other fun facts about the state and practice following directions with cardinal directions.
The second set of following directions is called State Facts and Symbols and teaches you about the state flag, nickname, abbreviation, symbols and more! State symbols help children learn about the different plants and animals that live in the state as well as agricultural products and natural resources the state is known for.
Students also work on language concepts such as left/right, north/south/east/west, and above/below. They have the opportunity to follow directions with these concepts multiple times to improve mastery. One-step and two-step directions are included.
Instructions are provided to simplify the activity for children working at lower levels and to increase the difficulty for students who need a challenge.

The following presidents are included: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan.
The first set of following directions for each president is about their life outside of the presidency and has you color and draw related pictures. The second set of directions continues to teach about the president’s life outside of the presidency, and has you cut and glue the pictures from the first activity to make a scene about their life. The third set of directions is about the president’s time in office and has you complete a notebooking page about each president.
