Not sure how many resources you need?
Of course it depends on your particular context, but I’d like to give you an idea of how I’ve used them across multiple levels, lessons and age groups.
In general I follow this sequence:
- Introduce the language and use activities to focus on understanding, i.e., the children have to listen and understand to complete the craft/game/worksheet.
- Revise the language and give the children the opportunity to produce the language.
- Practise the language in a freer way that lets the children experiment with the language.
Below is a sample lesson map with the resources.
Note: Another important point worth mentioning is that I also use some of these resources independently rather than alongside the story.
Sample lesson resource map
Lesson 1: Find and stick jungle craft or Colouring sheets; Flashcards and game cards; Walking through the Jungle song/story
Lesson 2: Jigsaw Games or Craft (or Find and Stick or Colouring sheets); Flashcards and game cards; Walking Through the Jungle song/story
Lesson 3: Mini-books; Small group card games with Flashcards and game cards; Walking Through the Jungle song/story
Lesson 4: Dice and graphing sheets; Jungle animals board games
Lesson 5: Snakes and Ladders board games and craft; Fortune tellers; Walking Through the Jungle song
Lesson 6: Finger Puppets or Roleplay puppets and masks; Write and Draw
Note: There’s more than enough material to cover in up to 10 lessons. With groups that have lessons twice a week, I would typically teach an 8 lesson unit on the topic.
What’s more, each resource includes different templates so you can differentiate for different levels or repeat the story across year groups but using different templates.

Frequently asked questions
Yes, of course! Maybe you have the time and enjoy creating things, but it has to be said that being a young learner teacher can involve a HUGE amount of extra work making materials. Give yourself a break!
All my materials have been tried and tested in the classroom. As well as having almost 20 years of teaching experience, I am also a qualified trainer for the Trinity TYLEC (Teaching Young Learners Extension Certificate), so you can rely on the quality.
Yes! There are a range of templates to choose from within each resource so it’s super-easy to differentiate. The included Activity Suggestions will also give you ideas about how you can conduct the activity so each child can work (play!) to their full potential.
Definitely! (You knew I would say that!) No, but seriously speaking, I started making these resources for just one class but I’ve now used them several times over. I’ve even used them with the same groups in subsequent years, because the different templates allow me to vary the activity and language focus.
