This lesson uses a story and quiz to develop the reading and vocabulary of primary age young learners. One of the main aims of using stories at this level is the general development of reading skills. Using longer story texts develops a far wider range of skills than is usually included in texts in primary coursebooks. In this story lesson students are given the opportunity to hear and read an original narrative story and build their knowledge of how a story develops.
- To develop reading skills in younger learners by using a short, narrative story
- To reinforce forms of the present tense, particularly third person
