39 photocopiable activities designed to develop study skills in young learners.
Systematic approach to language development.
Flexible, easy-to-use supplementary material.
The 39 activities in Building Blocks for English provide teachers with a systematic approach to the development of study skills and language development in 9 - 11 year olds. Through a series of motivating and engaging activities, learners move beyond simple repetition of words to generation of language through recognition of word partners and patterns.
Key features :
- Flexibility. Activities can be used with the whole class, in pairs/groups, for individual study, for homework tasks and can be used progressively or ‘dipped into’, to deal with specific needs.
- Clear Teacher’s Notes, giving activity type, rationale, materials needed, instructions on running the activity, plus follow-up and extension activities.
- Development of everyday learning skills such as finding words/subjects in books, categorising, selecting, editing, recording information etc. which will help pupils in other subjects in the school curriculum.
- Activities build confidence, encourage autonomy and do not underestimate what young learners can understand and achieve.
