Highly recommended. Something different.

In short, this book is like gold. Straight to the point, no-nonsense activities and games will enhance your lessons no end with your younger kids. They require very little preparation and many can be done on the spur of the moment, which is a blessing. Having tried and tested many of the games with my kids, I can say that they will inject a spark of life if the lesson is lacking, or simply enhance a class which is already going well. If you're reading this, then you're probably a teacher and you probably already know that you can't have kids sitting round in chairs endlessly doing grammar and vocabulary exercises on paper. This book will add to that mental bank of games and activities that you can integrate into your lesson planning or pull out of the hat when needed. The kids will learn more, become more cooperative and look forward to your lessons - not to mention that it makes your life easier.
Includes a great introduction with practical tips, and a very useful 6 step catergorising of the games from the initial listening stages of language learning right through to writing at the end, which is something I'd never come across in other publications and is a vital element to the effective teaching of preschool and younger primary age kids.
All in all, good stuff.
