Story adaptation


These slideshow presentations with audio were created by 8 year-old pupils in a French primary school EFL class, based on Emily Gravett's children's book The Odd Egg (see it on Google books).

The class worked on the story in six 90-minute sessions, working on the names of animals which lay eggs (birds, reptiles, insects) and the verbs in the story (wait, crack, hatch) using flashcards and worksheets. In a final task, the learners narrated slideshow presentations: they typed the correct verbs into a template, chose and drew the baby to emerge from the egg, and made an audio recording of their story.
