I'm doing some volunteering at a primary school in Nepal.
The English books provided by the Nepali government are really hopeless, and it's difficult for the volunteer teachers to use them, or even to get a sequence of what topics need to be taught from them. I was wondering, does anyone know of a website or book that gives an overview of the topics/grammar points that should be taught to primary school children learning ESL? We would like to at least do a yearly curriculum outline for the volunteers so they know what to teach, and in what order.
My second question is about books. We'd like to buy some more useful books, but the problem is that a school like this can't afford to buy western-style coursebooks with student books for each child. Does anyone know of a series where we could buy just the teacher's book, and use this for teaching the kids? Or a single book we could buy that would give a good outline of a primary school curriculum?
thanks so much!
