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. Below is a sample lesson map with the resources.

In general I follow this sequence:

  1. 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.
  2. Revise the language and give the children the opportunity to produce the language.
  3. Practise the language in a freer way that lets the children experiment with the language.

Lesson 1: Flashcards and game cards (story characters); Storytelling; Colouring sheets

Lesson 2: Find and stick or Find and Colour craft; Flashcards and game cards; Storytelling with video or book

Lesson 3: Dice games; Telescope craft Flashcards and game cards; Story retelling

Lesson 4: Mini-books; Story telling; Small group card games

Lesson 5: Graphing sheets + dice games; Storytelling; Write and Draw templates OR card games

Lesson 6: Jigsaw Display Craft OR Shark family Stick Puppet Craft + Learning stations with games, story and crafts used.

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.

Once you’ve had a chance to use your materials, don’t forget to come back to leave a review. As a thank you, you’ll receive a 20% discount on any other resource : )
