What do teachers say about the 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.
The provided activity suggestions give you plenty of ideas for how you can build a lesson around this resource. I’d recommend adding in a storytelling and a game or two. Find videos, songs and other useful resources on the Three Billy Goats Gruff Story Resource Page. You can even dramatise the story at the end.
You can certainly find some free worksheets out there, but 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!)
