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! They work great for mixed aged groups and different abilities because they come with different templates AND different suggestions with how to use the resource. No time wasted on adapting different worksheets!

The provided activity suggestions give you all the steps you need to create a fun and engaging lesson for your young learners. Add in the storytelling and a game to revise the story language, and you’re ready to go.

You can certainly find some free worksheets out there, but it’ll be very difficult to find one that will offer you as much engaging language practice, or cater to different abilities. The activity suggestions that are included here, will really help you increase the fun and interaction.

I can guarantee your young learners will be much more excited to create this. Engaged and motivated children make for a happy lesson (and teacher!)
