There's an Alligator in My Desk

The Collection

My Stories is a collection of stories for Cycle 2 that explores a variety of themes and subjects. Some of the stories are light and fun; others look at serious issues many students have to deal with. They are all of high-interest to students aged 8-10.

Integrated in the stories are learning strategies, functional language, vocabulary and grammar in line with the Progression of Learning. As well, reproducible material accompanies each story. 

My Stories offers teachers the freedom to select the stories that best complement their teaching. There is no fixed order, but the
stories are classified as easy, medium or more difficult. 

My Stories, a great way to develop C2 and continue what was learned in Cycle 1!
