Video Lesson: Mr. Bean Follow me on twitter This is a video lesson based around the video “Mr. Bean packs his suitcase” thanks to British Council for bringing it to my attention in their lesson plan on making predictions but I’ve adapted it for use in different ways with different levels. Kids and lower levels The aim of this lesson plan is to practice holiday vocabulary (clothes and items that go in a suitcase) and some basic grammar structure.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Starts To Write | Primary EFL Resources The Very Hungry Caterpillar is full of useful vocabulary for children – days of the week, food names, numbers… Children can use this vocabulary to create their own stories – for instance, “What I ate this week” (“On Monday, I ate fried rice. On Tuesday, I ate chicken.”), making it nice and personal to them. But to begin with, they can trace over the words, fill in gaps, or repeat phrases in mini books, allowing them to become more familiar with the vocabulary before they produce it themselves. Mini book instructions here. Update: You can download a PDF of all the mini books here - updated to have just three penmanship lines, instead of four as in the mini books below. Update: You can download a PDF in 8.5″ x 11″ format here: Very Hungry Caterpillar mini books 8.5 x 11 Mini book: trace names of fruit and draw a picture: My Fruit Book: trace and draw Mini book: look at the picture, write the correct name: My Fruit Book: look and write Mini book: trace and draw the names of food: Like this:
