Do your children have a favourite story? One that they like to hear over and over again?

You probably already know that stories are powerful teaching tools, particularly with younger learners.

But did you know that the new edition of Classic Tales now makes it even easier to bring the magic of good storytelling into your English classroom?

Use this award-winning series to effortlessly enrich your English lessons with practice in the four key skills – reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

Reading
Children find the much-loved stories irresistible. Vibrant, colour illustrations on every page bring the stories to life and make it easy for them to follow the narrative. They love looking for the details and finding their favourite characters. A picture dictionary or illustrated glossary helps them with the meaning of key words.

Writing
The Storybooks support writing through comprehension activities, and the Activity Books offer a range of extra writing exercises, helping you to make the most of the language presented to students.

Speaking
The short play in every Activity Book and Play re-uses the same language. There is support for teachers on how to speak the play in class and how to perform the play for an audience.

Students can perform the play for the rest of the class, for other classes, or even the whole school. The play can also be used for a parents’ evening or drama competition.

Listening
Every e-Book includes the complete recorded text. Children can consolidate their understanding of the story by listening to the audio version in American English. If you use the e-Book on an Interactive Whiteboard, the whole class can watch and listen together.
