Bonnie's stories

Bonnie Rafferty has shared 96 MFL resources on TES, most of which are designed to help primary language learners understand basic vocabulary through stories and song. Having excited pupils about reading during World Book Day (1 March), why not use the next few weeks to develop their passion for stories in a foreign language?

What are the resources?

- La Chenille qui fait des Trous - a French translation of The Very Hungry Caterpillar that will help with food vocabulary. Pupils can rearrange and colour the pages to personalise their book.

- Rabbit Story - a tale that introduces days of the week and food in simple sentences, created using Storybird software (

- Ours Brun - an adaptation of Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? The repetition and rhythm of the story will reinforce key words.

- La Belle au Bois Dormant - a compendium of activities on the theme of Sleeping Beauty, including colour by number, flashcards and a cloze task.

What else?

Bonnie's resources are not limited to stories - she has also uploaded flashcards, animations and interactive whiteboard games. For more, visit her TES profile.
