Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The lesson started with a game of Simon Says to engage the children. The topic of the lesson was listening comprehension, where the assignment was to answer questions after listening to a book being read out loud. The children who wanted to, got to practice their own reading by helping to read the book to their classmates. The questions were answered in groups of three so they could discuss, and in the end, the answers were looked over and corrected on the board together.

Personnel Input:
Siri Lindblad planned and led the lesson, and Ruth Obilo assisted with translation when necessary.

The children had the opportunity to enhance their listening comprehension and focus through this activity. We provided a unique source of exposure to the English language, differing from the children’s usual experiences. The written English found in literature does not reflect the English these kids are typically exposed to.

Unanticipated Achievements:
Many of the children were eager to read large sections of the book aloud, which was a pleasant surprise. This was beneficial as it allowed the kids to improve not only their listening comprehension but also their English reading skills.
