Features for the 2nd edition include real-world fluency development with supporting DVD, interactive Online Practice, new and updated assessment and testing material, and additional culture focus sections.
Support and development for the whole child
Family and Friends has a very clear methodology with objectives for every lesson, and carefully staged activities to support your pupils’ learning.
The Workbook matches every lesson in the Class Book page by page so it is easy to move from Class Book to Workbook. It offers a wide variety of different practice and consolidation activities including:
Phonics Plus! pages at the back of the workbook give additional practice of all the phonics sounds in each unit. This means that children will be able to improve their reading, and decode words by recognising spelling patterns.
Students prepare their writing tasks in the Class Book and then have the opportunity for more extensive writing in the ‘About Me’ sections of Skills Time! in the Workbook.
There is further written practice of the Everyday English including activities based on the Fluency DVD. A Fluency Review board game at the back of the Workbook is a fun, motivating context for students to review the language through spoken practice. There is also an Everyday English phrase bank as a useful reference section.
