Mantra Lingua's exciting eGrammar tales help all learners to develop strong reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. They are an effective literacy tool for all stages.
An excellent aid for EAL children, there are clear instructions of what to do in a number of languages, including: Arabic, Bulgarian, Cantonese, English, French, Farsi, Hungarian, Lithuanian Panjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Sylheti, Turkish and Urdu.
Taking well known stories as their starting points pupils can read the Mantra Lingua dual language edition of Jill and the Beanstalk before completing the activities. Pupils can explore the story of Jill and the Beanstalk by watching the video, reading the e-version of the story and then working through the activities to fully explore the story.
All the activities are designed for Key Stage 2 and take the vocabulary from the story to give pupils a rich learning experience and deeper understanding. The app can be used by individual pupils on PCs as well as by the whole class on the white board.
1. Grammar: synonyms, punctuation, find the pronouns, find the noun phase, replace the pronoun and use possessive pronouns.
2. Vocabulary: Look, listen and read the story. Re-word the story, onomatopoeic words, do the crossword and re-write the story.
3. Activities: Complete the jigsaw puzzle. Make a wanted poster using descriptions of the characters. Make your own talking picture book by writing your own version of the story and putting in David Anstey’s pictures from the story or even adding your own. Then you can print the story and fold it into a mini-book using the Storyfold™ system.
