Early English Learning for children in kindergarten and primary school

Little Early Bird is a concept for open flexible lessons, providing many options to actively learn and discover the English language.
Developed for young children, the didactical concept of Little Early Bird is:

  • oriented according to playful, action-based, situational and thematic contexts,
  • developed for integrative working and also teaching for short sequences of time,
  • always considering the age of the children.

The language competence areas Listening and understanding, speaking and acting are the main focus of Little Early Bird.

Little Early Bird offers 6 thematic units: 
    At school
    That's me
    My family and my friends
    Pets and other animals
    My toys
    The year

These 6 themes cover all necessary topics and learning fields of Early English Learning. Each theme package forms a complete unit and can be taught independently from the other units. The themes correspond to the children's daily life and experiences. The teaching materials offer possibilities for project work and are also compatible to the school curriculum.
