ELT Reader of the Month – Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie
Our Popcorn ELT Primary Readers are a series of low-level, graded readers. Based on popular films, TV series and classic children’s literature, Popcorn ELT Primary Readers are targeted at children in the early stages of learning English. They are published at four levels following a carefully graded syllabus.
This month, the spotlight is on Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie, a Level 1 ELT Reader based on the classic Peanuts series. Level 1 Readers are aimed at early beginners learning to read independently in English. The book contains 200 headwords with a total word count of 556.
Things don’t always go well for Charlie Brown. But Charlie Brown never gives up. When the red-haired girl starts at Charlie Brown’s school, Charlie Brown falls in love. But will the red-haired girl look at Charlie Brown? Follow Charlie Brown and Snoopy on another new adventure based on the latest film adaptation of the timeless series.
We love the colourful illustrations and simple layout of this ELT Reader. Whether you’re a Peanuts fan or new to the world of Charlie Brown, the fun characters are sure to delight your young English learners.
Plus, Scholastic ELT Readers also include factfiles on real-world aspects of the story – in the Snoopy and Charlie Brown Reader, the focus is on Minnesota, the home of Charlie Brown. This non-fiction section is a great way to vary the reading experience and helps to introduce useful new vocabulary on a cross-curricular topic.
