Activity Book

(with Picture Dictionary and take-home pages)

The Activity Book accompanies the Student’s Book and reinforces each unit’s target language through a wide variety of engaging activities. Pen-to-paper activities; pre-reading and pre-writing exercises; consolidation activities and pull-out pages to help learners revise vocabulary.

Puppet

Children love puppets. The Pandy puppet can be used by the teacher in a variety of ways to help present and practise language. It allows the teacher to interact and communicate with the children in their real and fantasy worlds.

Story Cards

Story Cards serve to develop comprehension and concentration skills and present values in an engaging way. They encourage active participation, while teaching values and social skills. Stories help transmit authentic rhythm and intonation: they train the ear and help the children to recognise and imitate the music of the language. The illustrations help to convey meaning, while both the context and the situation anchor the vocabulary.

Flashcards

The full-colour Flashcards represent the key vocabulary of the entire course. The Teacher’s Guide carries clear guidelines for using them in the presentation, practice and consolidation stages,
as well as their use in many games. Additional flashcard resources have been added to the series to assist teachers in helping children learn about the alphabet, numbers and phonics.

Posters

Pandy and Friends now has an expanded series of interactive posters which offer teachers and students visual supports in the following areas: colours and shapes, the alphabet, numbers, phonics. There is also a special ‘Pandy Playhouse’ poster.
