  • Eat your Peas

    A very complex package of resources with versatile use opportunities: good for teaching daily routines (normally an extremely boring topic for me but it hopefully will do the trick), food and places vocabulary. The story itself is also witty and relatable for kids.

    • Thanks for such a lovely review Veronika! You’re right, there are quite a few directions this book can go in. The last time I taught with the book and this pack I focused mainly on the food and preferences language, then we led into the daily routines resources with Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush. Hopefully teaching daily routines will be a bit less boring this time! Thanks again.
