There are many books of activities for teaching English in the primary classroom, but this book is different.
Edited by Fiona Copland and Sue Garton with Monika Davis, by British Council, "Crazy animals and other activities for teaching English to young learners" is different
because all the activities have been tried
and tested by the very people who are
going to use them, teachers like you. These
teachers work in the most diverse contexts
and conditions, sometimes with large classes,
sometimes with very small groups, sometimes
with every type of resource you could wish
for, sometimes with only a board to support
There are 50 tried and trusted activities which have been refined and improved over the years by teachers working in diverse contexts and environments. Children will enjoy practising their English through these stimulating and motivating activities.
"However, they share a desire
to help their students to learn English in an
enjoyable way. We imagine you too share this
desire and that is why you have picked this
book. We hope you find the activities useful,
engaging and fun too, and enjoy using them
in your class". (Introduction).
