animal-themed BAREFOOT BOOKS worksheets

7 Oct

I created these worksheets a couple of years ago and shared them on TeacherPayTeachers. However, it seems they are not very popular on there! So I thought I would share them in here hoping someone finds them useful 🙂

I love Barefoot singalong books. They are catchy, nicely illustrated and great for young EFL learners. I use some of their books/songs in my lessons, mainly the animal-themed ones. That’s why I created these collection of worksheets so my pupils would have a little task to work on the lyrics.

Pumpkins are a very common Autumny fruit. Besides, they are one of the main Halloween symbols!

There are many activities that could be done related to Pumpkins and that would keep children motived and eager to learn.

Next, there is a collection of resources that I have gathered together to work on Pumpkins with the little ones in Primary level:

To start with, I have selected a book of Splat the Cat, who I adore! (click on the image to hear the read aloud).

To finish with the pumpkin lesson ideas, I would like to share this cartoon video I found which has got a moral story behind. It is called “Spookley the square Pumpkin”.
