36-week spoken English course - 30 different English topics covered! Something For Every Day! There are free versions of this course online. The difference being if you want a product full of pictures or one without pictures and lots of links to the free site you downloaded it from. Some don't mind, others are looking for a more professional image. I took a lot of time to clear away all the hyperlinks, and add photos and I am very happy with the final outcome. Book 5 covers: The ten lesson topics studied in Talk a Lot Elementary Book 1 are: Town, Food, Shopping, Health, Transport, Clothes, Work, Family, Home, and Free Time. Book 6 covers: Talk a Lot - Crime, Sport, Music, Weather, Animals, Cars, The Human Body, Colours and Numbers, Life Events, and Nature.

This lesson includes two parts: Part 1: Fine Motor Skills Shapes to develop fine motor skills and perfect the use of the magic pen.

The style of lettering is designed to suit lowercase writing in both print and cursive. Examples of other versions of letter forms are also included to help emphasise that children will see variations in books and with other people's handwriting.
