Listening skill is a skill that is aimed to be acquired in Turkish education and training and requires students' cognitive and social competencies such as perceiving, understanding, inferring, interpreting, evaluating and communicating. Tales are thought to contribute to the development of listening skills in children. However, at the fifth grade level, there is no scale that allows examining the effect of fairy tales on listening skill. In this context, it was aimed to develop an attitude scale for fifth grade students to improve the listening skills of fairy tales. The universe of the research consists of 5th grade students studying in Samsun in the 2020-2021 academic year. The sample of the research, on the other hand, consists of 702 students randomly selected from the universe. Analysis of the research data was made using SPSS24 and AMOS26 programs. As a result of the research, "attitude scale towards listening to fairy tales" consisting of five sub-dimensions and 22 items was developed. The sub-dimensions of the scale were determined as "Attitude Towards Tablela, Understanding, Analyzing, Associating with Life, Presentation of the Tale, Active Participation". The scale was prepared in 5-point Likert type, and the cronbach alpha reliability coefficient for the overall scale was found as ,87 and 47.73% of the total variance explained in the 5 sub-dimensions.
