UGH. Again, a really important objective, but students don't like to come "to speech" and just be ordered around, no matter what cutesy materials we use as a context! Often we need a hook, and Easy Concepts provides that by using bright, colorful, interactive animal pictures as the context to engage students so that they can develop the necessary conceptual foundations and strategies. Easy Concepts allows you to select from three activities- Animal Sizes, Underwater Sequencing and Before and After Farm, two of which have sub-levels allowing you to grade the level of difficulty.
