a great resource pack,
This review is from: 500 Activities for the primary classroom (Paperback)
Carol Read has written a great book for pre- and in-service EFL teachers in the primary classroom. In 10 sections/chapters on Listening and Speaking; Reading and Writing; Vocabulary and Grammar; Storytelling and Drama; Games; Rhymes, Chants and Songs; Art and Craft; Content-based learning; ICT and multimedia; Learning to learn, Carol has reflected the key areas in primary language teaching. Each section gives an overview of methodological issues related to the topic and invites you to reflect, analyze and evaluate the teaching and learning.
I am going to use the book as a reader in a teacher training course for pre-service primary school educators since, amongst many other things, it suggests great ideas for creating optimal learning conditions for children, ways to manage children positively and it asks my trainees to reflect, analyze and evaluate.
