Do you have students that need to work on their argumentative writing, but you need a topic that will provide motivation to get those fingers typing or pencils moving?  If so, this four-passage, 5-page text set has the perfect prompt for you: the relationship between homework and student learning!  There are two sides to the issue, and students are required to cite relevant text information to support their argument - just like CCSS RI 1 requires! Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation.

Auditory Processing Task Cards for Preschool & Kindergarten

By: Laurie Fyke @ Primarily Learning
Preschool – Kindergarten

(Teacher Reference)

What is Auditory Processing?
From the time our children are babies, we seem to naturally draw their attention to environmental sounds, and in turn, begin to develop their auditory processing skills.
  • “The doorbell is ringing.”
  • “Do you hear mommy’s footsteps?”
Early activities and games, where your child learns to identify and recall sounds, includes things like making and identifying the sounds of specific animals, putting on a dramatic presentation, singing, recalling a rhyme, and dancing to music!
  • “I am a dog barking!”
  • The cat says, “Meow.”
  • “What does a lion say?”
  • “I can sing a song!”
  • “I’ll tell you a story.”
Check out these 30 task cards with activities to develop auditory awareness skills!

Try this! Put varying items in recycled small plastic juice bottles that have twist tops.

  • Wash the containers.
  • Collect items to place in the container such as: rice, coins, sand, dried beans, pull tabs, pebbles
  • Fill two containers to the same level (e.g. ½ full. ¼ full), with the same item.
  • Hot glue the lids onto the containers.
  • Use a colored marker to place matching dots on the bottom of the two containers that make the same sound.


  • Shake the container to hear different sounds.
  • Shake your container as you sing a familiar song. Try to use the beats of the music.
  • Demonstrate shaking patterns. Ask your child to copy the pattern.
e.g. | |   |       |  Use the rhythm of familiar songs.
  • In a classroom, create three groups of children. Hand out similar containers to each group (e.g. containers filled with sand, beans, coins).   Create a soundscape as you suggest a rhythm for each group, and then direct the children on when to play.  They are following both oral, and visual directions!
  • Wrap a piece of paper around the outside of several pairs of containers… that have the same sound. Place the containers at a center, and ask the children try and match the sounds. (Listen to find to containers filled to the same level with the same material.)
Find more at your fingertips” ideas to develop Auditory Awareness, Discrimination, and Memory Skills with these 30 Amazing Task Cards!  

Please Note: Each child is different, and children develop at varying rates.  Your 3 - 5-year-old may be quietly observing the world around or demonstrating determination, and persistence.  Some children will quickly grasp, and enjoy an activity, while others need repeated lessons. Some children are bold and daring, while others are shy and cautious. Remember to provide numerous and varied learning opportunities because children do not all learn at the same time, or in the same way. Have fun!

Have a great day!
