Jungle School Tales (Reading Heroes) by Tina Barrett

(Graded Reader)

Another great graded reader for young children in a TESOL class.

The stories are very short, and the language is easy for beginning students to understand.

The book is divided into 4 short stories that I spread out over 4 lessons in my class:
Jed's First Day
Hide-and-Seek
Sports Day
and Mikey is Busy

Recommend for any beginner TESOL class with young children.
Available on Amazon.com here.

Addendum:
Here are some supplementary teaching materials I made when teaching this book in my classes.  These materials don't really work too well independently of the actual book, so you'll need to get a copy of the book to use these.
When I taught this book, I divided it into four parts and spread it across four lessons.

PowerPoints: Part 1 (driveslidespub), Part 2 (driveslidespub), Part 3 (driveslidespub), Part 4 (driveslidespub)

Worksheets: Part 1 (drivedocspub), Part 2 (drivedocspub), Part 3 (drivedocspub), Part 4 (drivedocspub)
