Jack couldn't help feeling envious of Jill. He wished he'd climbed a beanstalk instead of a hill.
Told in rhyme, this is an charming new version of an old favourite, in which Jill takes on the evil giant to save her family. Throughout the story she meets Little Bo Peep, the Queen of Hearts, and more characters from other popular nursery rhymes.
"Jill and the Beanstalk" Interactive Literacy CD-ROM is part of a series of e-books that help students to improve their English. Pupils watch a video of the story, complete with vivid illustrations from the original picture book, then take part in fun quizzes for reading and listening comprehension. Topics include Reading Aloud, Onomatopoeic Words, Synonyms, Pronouns, Re-wording a story and so on.
With the Storytelling function, students can even write their own stories about Jill's adventures, using images from the CD-ROM.
Each Interactive Literacy CD-ROM comes with teachers' notes and whiteboard interactivity. Narrated instructions in a choice of eleven languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Panjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish, Sylheti and Urdu) make this the perfect learning tool for the multilingual classroom.
