What is included?

This 205 page Activity Pack contains 14 different resources. Each resource contains several different variations. You can choose the most suitable for the age and level of your young learners, and the skills you want to practise. Every resource helps you include plenty of speaking and listening opportunities for a memorable and fun learning experience.

What will my students learn?

These resources will help your young learners with these language points:

  • nature vocabulary
  • prepositions of movement
  • people and family vocabulary
  • useful story phrases, e.g., “What’s that?”; “What a beautiful day!”; “We’re not scared.”
  • semi-fixed expressions, e.g., “be going to”; “have to”; “can’t”.

At the same time, they’ll develop their fine motor skills, literacy skills, social skills and develop their understanding of the world.

SEE the Preview for full details of the vocabulary and structures targetted.
