Stone Soup

Stone Soup

Learn English conditionals with this modern update to an old folk tale found in many cultures. In this story, an unsuspecting tramp gets more than he bargained for when he enlists the help of an elderly widow in making his "stone soup". The story is brought to life with lively, authentic dialogue focused on English conditionals and lovingly rendered illustrations. This book is also available for Kindle and in paperback format from Amazon. Find out more at Britlish.com. Comics are a fun way to learn English in a similar way to playing a game. Highly visual, the pictures serve to provide clear context for the vocabulary and grammar that is presented in the characters' dialogues. As the pictures remove the need for huge amounts of text, the bite-sized texts are able to focus on the intended vocabulary and grammar. The dialogue uses authentic language, complete with colloquial expressions and an appropriate register. There is a crossword puzzle included to help learn and remember the vocabulary from the story, as well as a wordsearch puzzle. The puzzles can also be accessed in interactive form on the Britlish website. They can also be printed for use at home or in the classroom. In addition to the puzzles, teachers can also use the comic in the classroom for role-play purposes, writing assignments, and for describing the pictures, as well as for many other purposes.

Fantastic Beasts Bundle

Fantastic Beasts Bundle

I have bundled together four resources which I think will appeal to Potter fans. There are magical beasts galore here and plenty of opportunities to use descriptive writing, informative writing and even letter writing inspired by J.K.Rowling's work. Pupils can revise their writing skills but will , hopefully, be inspired to read more widely too. Suitable for Potter fans of all ages.
