Quite a few teachers have asked for help on linking themes together e.g. where kids have got awesome at using the language for one theme but then how to mix that together with the language from other themes.
There are two main strategies for this:
For the stories part we’ve got a few different options.
Over in the old VIP Forum Gumby has collated together lots of fantastic play and skit ideas to link together themes.
And then in the main Genki English curriculum we have several story based lessons that build on what has gone before:
|Goldilocks & the 3 Bears|
|The Bremen Town Musicians – linking together the “Doctor, Doctor” “What do you want to do?” and “Where are you going?” lessons.|
|Gingerbread Man – with “How are you?” “I’m hungry” etc.|
|Little Red Riding Hood 2 – At Grandma’s House|
Plus over in the Genki English Facebook Group we’re brainstorming some new ideas, so if you’d like to give your input then do join us over there! 🙂
