Active Listening Skills: 5 ways to show you’re listening.

       1.  Maintain eye contact.

       2.  Don't interrupt.

       3.  Ask questions.

       4.  Repeat back what the speaker says.

       5.  Listen for total meaning.

Concentrate:  thinking about, listening to, or watching something closely without being distracted.

Distractions:  something that takes attention away from an activity or task.

Interruptions:  when activities stop because of an outside cause, for example, a game stops because the telephone rings.

Props:  items used in pretend play; for example, hand made menus when playing restaurant, or items that are like dishes when playing kitchen.
