Amazing new Basic Skills Workbook for Pre-Schoolers

Thank you to everyone who took up the special offer last week – welcome on board!

If you’re lucky enough to see your class everyday you have lots of skills to teach, not just English and confidence.

And of course it makes sense to try and Genki those up too! 🙂

So Amye has come up with this amazing basic skills workbook that I’m sure is going to be a lifesaver for all the VIP members out there!

Ninja Tip:  If you’re not a VIP member yet,  order your Teacher’s Set  now and you’ll be able to download this workbook too.

It covers Tracing & Motor Skills,  Numbers and counting skills, Pattern recognition and observation plus a whole bunch more all for the first Adventure level.

Over on the VIP forum Amye wrote up a few words:

-I am in the process of making a teacher’s guide which has instructions and hopefully an answer key. This will hopefully clarify what one is supposed to do with some of the more confusing pages.

-The pages with genkienglish.com (the back for card sets) is for if you print the entire book out in one go. They usually come after a cutting page.

-I used full colour backgrounds as my kids want nothing to do with B&W paper haha, but I am definitely thinking of making a more ink-friendly version if there is interest.

I think it’s amazing what Amye has done, thank you so much for sending it in!

And if you have comments for Amye please do write them on the blog comments, or indeed if you’d like to see further books made for the other Genki English levels!

Be genki,

Richard

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    @Haydee: If we get enough comments on here then I’m sure it might inspire Amye to make some more! 🙂

    What a great addition to workbooks for preschoolers! Love them! Thank you, and please make the same for other levels!

    Looking brilliant, and perfect for my small classes.

    A black/white version would be super though, the color print eat up my printer color way too fast :/

    And yes, workbooks the other levels too please 😀

    Thanks!

    Thank you!

    Its great and the timing is perfect for me. I was just starting to make my own worksheets for my new class starting in April. Amye did much better work than me and I hope you can do the same for other levels. Also, I hope the teacher’s manual and answer key will be ready soon.

    I’ve been using these for a few weeks now.
    Kids loved the spinning wheel. I laminated it and used a spinning pointer from my Twister game.
    In fact many of the pages work well laminated and reused as different activities.
    Many of the pages work well as springboards for speeches and presentations.
    They inspired me to create a few of my own.
    Amye is awesome for doing these!
    Thanks Amye!

    Wow! It looks amazing
    And so professional for parents !!!!
    I’d really like to have all curriculum made like this
    Lovely
    Brilliant

    Great stuff for the younger kids. This is one of the advantages of the new levels. The community can share great materials that others can use. I’m not good at all with graphics so it’s great to get these resources from others who are obviously very talented. I’d like to get my students doing 1 presentation/activity and/or some kind of challenge at each level that captures learning from the whole level.

    Oh wow~! Thank you everyone! I am currently moving at snail’s pace working on the Teacher’s Guide and the next (Brainy) level. Haha but hopefully I will be able to post them soon! This has been great motivation to get me into gear~!

    This really is an amazing piece of work. At first I was a little turned off by it because it reminded me a little of the young learner workbook the school I work at uses, but this actually is pretty perfect for what it is DESIGNED for. An every day preschool English class. My classes are only twice a week, so having a workbook that doesn’t tackle ANY English seems silly to me. However, I would use this any day over the junk my school gives the parents.

    A+

  13. Mr.Rainbow

    Damn right Wow! 😀

    NookNook’s idea with laminating them for reuse is awesome, and will sure be doing just that 😉

    (weird I didn’t think of it myself since I laminate quite a bit..hehe)

    Thank you Amye, your ideas are ideal for younger children. I’m sure to put quite a few of your pages to good use. It’s good to have colour to use as an example in class but black and white would allow for me to provide individual prints for each child. My groups look forward to a few minutes within a lesson to acquire a work sheet, or appropiate colouring page. The super hero picture will be a sure hit.

    This is awesome, amazing, fantastic!!
    Amye thanks so much for this great book.I use it in many different ways even for a little older ones.

    Hello, all! Thank you for the support! I shall spare you the details of why I have been taking so long and cut to the chase! I have finished the Teacher’s Guides and have uploaded them on the original thread (in the first post). Please take a look and let me know if you have found a mistake! I’m doing my best to get the next level (Brainy) out, but if you could spare a few minutes to answer some of my questions in the forum it could speed up the production rate~! ^^ Thank you again GE community!

    Hi there,
    Amy, your colour workbooks look amazing!
    Unfortunately, the link to the black and white versions on the forum page no longer work (404 error). Would it be possible for you to repost them somewhere?
    Thank you for sharing all these things you put so much work into – much appreciated!
