The Enormous Turnip - Listen and Choose cover

Use in the classroom, online or as independent practice at home. These interactive digital task cards help kids develop their oral comprehension, and build their vocabulary.

What is included?

There are 15 different task cards organised into 3 groups. Kids listen to the audio and choose the corresponding picture from the simplified Enormous Turnip story.

The story images are out of order and the images are often quite similar so it really makes the children listen carefully to choose the right one.

The audio is recorded in Scottish Standard English. The images are the same as those in The Enormous Turnip Digital Audio Story and The Enormous Turnip Activities Bundle.

This resource is also included in The Enormous Turnip Activities BUNDLE

What will my students learn?

These task cards will help your students with the recognition of people and animal vocabulary. Your students will also consolidate useful structures and phrases, such as, “Come and help!” and “The (turnip) doesn’t move”. It’s also a good version of the story to internalise sentence structures such as Subject, Verb, Object: “The (man) pulls the (turnip)” and simple reporting language: “he says”; “they say”; “….says (the girl)”. There are also some good basic examples of the present simple tense.
