Learning English kids Website

As posted by the British Council:

There are some new materials on the
British Council's LearnEnglish Kids website.
This month we have a new story. It's a
traditional tale from West Africa called
'Why Anansi has thin legs'. Anansi is a
spider, and to find out why his legs are
so thin you'll have to listen to the story!

There are some lovely flashcards and a
reading and writing worksheet to accompany
it: http://www.britishcouncil.org/kids-stories-anansi.htm

Students are also given the opportunity
to write a traditional story from their
country. They can send it in to us and
we will put the best ones up on the site.
It will be great to be able to read traditional
stories written by children all over the world,
so please encourage your students and/or
children to take part and send us a story:

As spring time arrives (on this side of the
earth anyway!) we'd like to remind you
about the activities based on the topic
of seasons which you'll find here:
http://www.britishcouncil.org/kids-topics-seasons.htm

Finally, a reminder, that you'll find lots
of tips for how to get the most out of
the material and topics on LearnEnglish
Kids, on the TeachingEnglish website.
Here's the link to the Teaching Children
section:
