TeachingEnglish has lots of different lesson plans for teachers who are teaching English around the world to children aged 5-12. To help you find suitable lesson plans, we have three levels on our site. These lesson plans for level 1 are most suitable for children who can understand and use some words and short phrases, and can follow simple stories, songs and texts. Teachers can use the levels as a guide. For example, if they start to find level 1 lessons too easy, you can try more level 2 lessons. However, all children learn differently, so try lessons from different levels at any time, especially if it is a topic they enjoy.
