The age of the students may have a big impact on their listening ability. Young children, and some older children, are famously incapable of listening to anything for more than a minute or two unless it is a vividly told story (in which case they usually pay rapt attention). The key is either to get young children hooked on a story or to get them moving. Activities such as Fly Swatter (see Affective Frame), Word Grab and Race to the Wall (see Bottom Up Frame), which use action, tend to work well. And any activity involving TPR (total physical response), such as Action Skits (see Bottom Up Frame), is also likely to be popular. While there is always the danger of complete chaos with such activities, more experienced teachers will use their class­ room management techniques to keep the students on task.
