The Magic Book
The Magic Book
The Magic Book is a 6-level American English course for primary school children. Each level consists of Student's Book with integrated Activity Book, Teacher's Guide with Audio CD, and animations on DVD. An interactive digital version of the pupil's and teacher's materials is also available for each level. An optional interdisciplinary booklet (CLIL) accompanies each of the first 5 levels.
The Magic Book itself refers to a book that four children, Nick, Molly, Eddy and Jenny, find by chance. Magically, Benjy the Bear comes to life from out of the book and stays with the children to guide them through the next six years of learning.
The course covers the curriculum requirements for the American English language based on the Common European Framework of Reference (Level A1/A2). Each level offers between 80 and 90 lessons, including evaluation, and each lesson is estimated to take approx. 45 to 60 min. Day-to-day teaching notes are provided with reinforcement and extension activities. A rich and varied resource file can be found in each Teacher's Book.
The structure of The Magic Book 1 and 2 is similar: each unit begins with a story to introduce new words and language structures. It offers an animated song, and ends with games to practise the linguistic material presented. In level 2 Benjy presents the English alphabet. Flashcards and story cards are available for the first two levels.
The Magic Book 3 and 4 maintain the original structure and playful approach of the course but incorporate some new elements (photographic images, simple grammar strips, creativity and sound corners) in line with the children's growth and development.
The Magic Book 5 and 6 give the children the opportunity to reflect on what they have already learned and begin an inductive approach to grammar rules. The Magic Book 6 is also enriched by a number of pages on culture and civilisation from English-speaking countries. The sixth volume guides the children towards attainment level A2.
