Following directions

Listening to directions, planning the steps and acting on them

The skill teaches the child to look at the person who is asking him/her to follow directions, stop what he/she is doing and listen to what was said, repeat the directions out loud or to himself/herself (at least at the beginning) and follow the directions.

The teacher is telling the classroom about how to play a new game.

You should pay attention, look at the teacher, take notes either in your head or using pen and paper.
