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 6 lesson map with the resources. I’ve used these resources with children aged 3 to 10.

With shorter lessons of 45 minutes or less, this 6 lesson map could be adjusted to cover 10 lessons.

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; Storytelling with book, Storytelling Cards or PowerPoint story; Colouring sheets or Jigsaw games and craft

Lesson 2: Sort by size or Cut and Paste sequencing (With older children – 9 to 10 years – introduce writing descriptions) ; Flashcards and game cards; Storytelling Cards or PowerPoint story

Lesson 3: Storytelling with book, Storytelling Cards or PowerPoint story; Sequencing cards; Story wheel craft; Retelling with Story wheels

Lesson 4: Mini-books; Flashcards and game cards; Storytelling Cards or PowerPoint story

Lesson 5: Flashcards and game cards; Board games; Stick Puppet Theatre preparation

Lesson 6: Storytelling; Stick Puppet Theatre + dramatisation OR learning stations with different card sets, crafts, storytelling resources and Write and Draw project

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.

What do teachers say about Kids Club English resources?

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 and skills focus.
