Why choose Our Discovery Island?

Engaging for young pupils

It's sometimes hard to keep kids focused, but they do better when they can relate to the material in the book. The ongoing storyline in Our Discovery Island is motivating because pupils become involved in what's happening. Characters they can get to know across all units through different activities and stories help pupils stay interested. 

Perfect Partners

Promote learning progress

As new vocabulary and language structures are introduced it's important that pupils are exposed to them several times. Once pupils are exposed to new language via their textbook, it's useful for them to become familiar with new learnings and practice it in the Activity Book, then see it again in a video format or on the iWB.

Slowly introduce grammar

Introducing language structure in a way that pupils can make sense of it is important, and one thing that helps is to introduce language in manageable amounts. It's useful for pupils to see the target structure in a way that can be used as a model for practice and continued reference. Take a look at the “Look” grammar boxes in the Pupil's Book.

Incorporate digital elements

It is amazing what the kids are willing to do on a computer that they are reluctant to do in a book or on paper. The Pupil's Book comes with a CD-ROM full of activities kids can use to practice what they learned.
