You can choose the most suitable for the age and level of your young learners, and the skills you want to practise. Every resource helps you include plenty of speaking and listening opportunities for a memorable and fun learning experience.

What will my students learn?

These resources will help your young learners with these language points:

  • rooms of the house vocabulary
  • furniture vocabulary

  • colour vocabulary
  • numbers vocabulary
  • useful story phrases: “It was/is late”; “(Mr. Bear) is tired”; “This is terrible!”; “They are asleep/awake”; “Good morning”; “Good night”

At the same time, they’ll develop their fine motor skills, literacy skills, social skills and develop their understanding of the world.

  • PEACE AT LAST

    Having the pack was of great help to me since I was able to present the story to the children often and in different ways; we could play lots of different games which help them reinforce the story much more. The pack also included more vocab than the one I had previously planned to teach. It was the first pack to buy but certainly not the last.
