Product Description

This book contains a selection of short activities organized around six themes which reflect the content covered in young learner English exams and the curriculum in most primary mainstream classrooms: Animals, Journeys, Fantasy and adventure, The world around us, Healthy bodies, and About me. Activities are organized by topic and by level to make it easy to find appropriate activities for students. They encourage meaningful language use and real communication appropriate to primary learners. Each activity also contains guidance and information on preparation, procedure, language focus, skills focus and thinking focus. Activities can be used flexibly in any order at any point in a teaching programme. In addition, the design of the activities allows teachers to adapt and apply the ideas to other themes. This book is suitable for both novice and experienced teachers who need a resource of enjoyable and motivating activities for the young learner classroom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too advanced 15 Feb 2012
By Brink
Format:Paperback
Not terribly useful in my opinion, the vocabulary and grammer structures are too advance for many in the age group at which it is aimed. The games are too involved and not fun enough for young children. I won't be using it frequently!

2.0 out of 5 stars Young learners 5 Aug 2012
By pauline - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is good for primary children - 7-11 years. with a title identifying young learners it would have been helpful if it identified the actual ages suitable for these activities.
I was hoping to find activities suitable for much younger learners as I teach kindergarten. Some of the activities are suitable to simplify for using with much younger children but many of the activities require a great deal more skill.
I was a little disappointed with this book and would be more cautious in future purchasing.
