Mini e-Lessons

With many schools closed because of Covid-19, we are providing ‘ready-to-go’ Mini Picturebook e-Lessons. These are lessons for children to complete with teachers and/or parents (carers) at home. They can also be used by teachers of key worker children learning in a classroom context. The lessons provide simple guidelines for children to watch and listen to a picturebook being read aloud by the author/illustrator themselves. The lessons are suitable for primary English language learners (ESL, EFL, EAL) and children will be able to:

  • engage with picturebooks
  • develop their English language and especially their listening skills
  • find out and research interesting facts and information
  • enjoy meeting and listening to the creator of the picturebook

Easy to follow action verbs such as ‘predict, act out, think, personalise’ make learning comprehensible and explicit.Children are encouraged to share their work with their classmates and teacher to make learning motivating and collaborative and to create a virtual community of learners.We hope children will enjoy and learn. We hope these lessons will offer some support for primary English teachers trying their very best to teach English online. Gail & Tatia for PEPELT
