Effective Lesson Planning for Pre-primary AN Online course

Starting on February 24, 2019


I have just launched my latest, 10 hour online course. It is specifically for new teachers of Pre-Primary Learners!

About the course

Many teachers like you (even those with years of experience with Primary aged children) struggle to plan lessons that are engaging, effective and appropriate for this age group. This can quickly lead to feeling demotivated and burnt out.This 10 hour online course is for anyone who wants to plan effective and engaging lesson for 3-5 year olds. I’m going to show you how I do this and share a framework that you can use to plan your lessons. As well as some solid theory, the course has plenty of actionable advice and lesson ideas.

In this course, I’m sharing some of what I have learned over the past 18 years to help you feel confident, inspired and even go on to start sharing your best practice with the ELT community too.
