Special notes to the teachers on Sammy and KiteSammy and Kite is a course for young learners who are starting to learn English. The emphasis is on speaking and listening and the English language is introduced via images, picture stories and audio recordings. The book is based on the activities of four friends, Sammy the squirrel, Kite the kite, Katie the kangaroo and Benny the ball and the stories and exercises stimulate young learners and motivate them to learn in a fun and enjoyable way. The book comprises two sections; in the first, there are ten lessons which focus on spoken language whilst in the second section, pupils are gradually exposed to the written language, for passive recognition only. There are 24 core lessons in Sammy & Kite, each of which provides a natural context for presenting new words and is structured as follows: Picture Strip The key words of each lesson are presented in the strip of four of five pictures at the start of each lesson. These words are also recorded on the audio CD, so pupils can listen to the correct pronunciation. From Lesson 11 onwards, the words appear under the image. Picture Story Each picture story features the characters of the book. Pupils listen to the story while looking at the pictures and they can subsequently act out the story in groups. Exercises The exercises include a combination of listening and speaking activities, in conjunction with a variety of creative activities, such as: Matching exercises, where pupils draw lines to match objects and say the words aloud Colouring exercises, which make learning fun Drawing exercises, such as dot-to-dot or puzzle pictures, where pupils find hidden objects and say the words Role-play activities, based on a photo Sticker exercises, where people find stickers at the back of their books and stick them in the correct place to complete an image Songs, which feature simple language and new words Speaking exercises, which practise new words and language interactively (pair work, dialogues, asking and answering questions, miming) From Lesson 11 onwards, one or more short phrases or sentences for pupils to learn by heart Fun with Sammy lessons There are three Fun with Sammy lessons, after Lessons 8, 16 and 24, where the language learnt in the previous 8 lessons is consolidated. Sammys alphabet lessons There are eight Sammys alphabet lessons, after Lessons 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24, where each letter of the alphabet is illustrated.

It is very important that you use the suggestions and instructions from the Teachers Book. The plan outlines the activities that should be done during each lesson, but there are lots of extra ideas in the Teachers Book. Dont forget that it is not a lesson in the sense that Ss have to study at home. Through games, songs and flashcards you should ensure that your pupils have assimilated the vocabulary taught during each lesson. Pupils should have FUN! REMEMBER! Use the English language as much as you can. Of course, you should explain things to pupils in Greek in the beginning, but open your books, listen, draw, sing, look and other simple words are directions that pupils will understand soon, therefore there is no need to translate them into Greek.
