Taking the hard work out of preparing lessons!
It's great to have this material for little ones as although I've done a lot of research on the web, I couldn't find anything so well set out as your lessons. I am teaching children from 3 to 10 yrs old near Treviso, Italy and I must say that this material is taking a lot of the hard work out of preparing lessons! Anne Chambers, Treviso, Italy

Vocabulary and Language in These Beautiful Kindergarten Stories
You can see examples of the pictures from the different stories below, as well as the language that will be learned and reviewed from that story.
ESL / EFL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 11
Story 11 introduces family members, with the frog family, who become very hot and in turn each family member jumps into the cool pond. Then the frogs become cold and jump out again. Children love pretending to be the frogs and this story is easy to put on as part of a show to parents at the end of a term. Some verbs are revised from previous stories such as jump, eat and swim.
ESL / EFL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 12
In story 12 the cowboys and indians are fighting throughout the different rooms of the house. The pictures are dark, shadowy and mysterious as the battle rages in all the different rooms. The cowboy and indian are hidden in each picture so your preschool children can have fun finding them. Then mother calls and the cowboys and indians turn out to be two friends, and the story ends with the two boys having tea together in the light kitchen with chocolate cake.
ESL / EFL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 13
Story 13 revises the rooms of the house and adds more rooms, as two pets, Cat and Mouse have a mad chase through the various rooms when mother goes out. The story also includes the phrases, You can't catch me! Oh yes I can! There are some really fun games in the mini-lesson plans that you can play with those phrases, especially if you have some space. This story has a sweet ending with cat and mouse on the sofa together.
ESL / EFL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 14
There is further revision in story 14 of the rooms of the house and family members. Each story builds on the previous ones so the young children repeatedly hear the same words and remember them. New words and phrases are also introduced. Each day of the week (revised from story 10 with Gerard the Giraffe) a member of Archie's family give him a present. The present is a train and some track. Archie loves his train set and builds it right through the entire house... The mini-lesson plans have fun vocabulary games for giving and for train.
EFL / ESL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 15
Story 15 tells the story of Julie and her family as they build their house, but each time they build it something goes wrong, until finally they succeed with the perfect house. Family members and rooms of the house are revised, as one simply cannot do enough reviewing with young English language learners. New vocabulary includes words from nature such as the sea, the beach, the desert, mountain and snow. Other vocabulary is revised from previous stories including sand, field, green, garden, flowers and pond. Verbs include: build, live and play. See A4 size picture.
EFL / ESL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 16
In story 16 introduces farm animals and the ordinal numbers first to fifth. These can be replaced by simple numbers 1 to 5 if that is more appropriate for your pupils. The words dark and light are revised and the question How many? is introduced. The animals are all sleeping in the dark fields and numbers are revised as your pupils count up all the different animals. In the final picture family members are revised again when you meet the mouse family who are the only animals wide awake and mother mouse is reading a story in the light of the moon.
EFL / ESL Kindergarten/Preschool Story 17
Story 17 introduces body parts. Thomas loves to play his video game and keeps doing crazy things like falling in a hole, or a pond, or walking into a lamp post. Each time his mother has to bandage up a body part. Then he feels much better. Eventually Thomas sees his friends running and he cannot join in as he has so many bandages, so he throws his game away while his mother reads him a story.

Story 20 is the Princess and pirate. Cat and Mouse from story 13 wish they could be a pirate and a princess. A fairy appears and gives them different items of clothing so at the end they are dressed up as a princess and a pirate. The stories on their own are really lovely, and they all have adorable characters or a cute twist at the end that appeals to preschoolers, and adults too for that matter!
Many teachers have told me they find my resources excellent value and this next series of stories 11 to 20 is equally good value for money, especially given that this series contains even more pictures. There are over one hundred full colour story illustrations, plus 66 colour flashcards.

Considering each story will keep your young pupils busy for many happy hours of fun learning, this is unequivocably great value. You may also pay in British Pounds or US Dollars if you prefer.
