Product description

Five-Minute Activities for Young Learners provides teachers with a selection of short activities for 6-12 year olds.

This book encourages meaningful language use and real communication appropriate to primary learners. The activities are organised by topic and by level to make it easy to find appropriate activities. The six themes 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. Each activity contains guidance and information on preparation, procedure, language focus, skills focus and thinking focus. They 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. The book is suitable for both novice and experienced teachers who need a resource of enjoyable and motivating activities for the young learner classroom.
