This is an this integrated skills lesson, aimed at young learners with an English level of A2 and above to help them learn about World Book Day.


Students work in pairs, reading and writing to complete a text about World Book Day. Then they read clues and complete a book-themed crossword (and find a mystery word). The learners will then use a simple model to write about their own favourite book and add an illustration, using some of the vocabulary they have practised. Finally they will read their texts in class or record themselves reading the texts. There is an optional activity of making a display with the final texts.
