Using active methods has a lot of benefits for the teachers and also for the pupils. The pupils get to move and play. Individual learning styles get more attention, for example, the pupils who have difficulties with concentration, have a chance to move and play. The social skills of the pupils develop. The teachers get more information of their pupils by using different methods.
English Schoolbag´s courses advance pupils´ understanding, recognition and production of the basics of English. Versatile activities and learning environments motivate the pupils. During the fun activities even the more shy pupils can have more courage to participate and speak English. There are a lot of printable materials included in the course, for example, picture cards of animals, boardgames and exercises for the pupils. The endearing pictures of the animals by the illustrator have inspired the pupils and also the teachers. The courses of Finnish Active Learning encourage also to use the equipment and materials in school in different ways. Welcome to our courses!
