These Basic English lessons cover topics that can be used in nursery and kindergarten classes in preparation for any further learning, but particularly Year 1 Longman English Books. They can also be used in Year 1 to revise and make sure that the basic knowledge is there before starting with the Longman Year 1 book. These lesson plans have been put together with the volunteer teacher in mind. They should give you a basic framework for why certain things need to be taught, the rational for the timing of lessons and the rationale for delivery. Credit has been given and links provided to sources used. The topics talked about in these lessons should be broken into smaller frameworks to fit no more than an hour delivery time. As all of these are basic concepts needed as building blocks for future lessons, repetition is important for students to truly grasp the material.
