Teaching foreign language in lower elementary can be a challenge! How should we teach English to students who do not yet read and write in Swedish? This book explores the richness of age appropriate authentic texts written in English and provides a model of teaching that is enjoyable for young students who are emergent L1 readers. Teachers of preschool through 5th grade will find books, chants, rhymes and songs to use in their English instruction. Each chapter also provides suggested classroom activities and discussion questions to further support the teacher.
Kidworthy Works is an excellent reference for teacher education students and novice teachers, as well as for experienced teachers who are looking for a new approach to teaching English.
