Each week, depending on the theme, we can have them look through magazines or grocery ads with parents and then cut and paste their favorite things. i.e. favorite foods, favorite games, family members, etc.. We can have them do little themes each week (themes will be given on Friday for them) and the Friday after we will find what they had discovered. It will help them learn their favorite things in English!
