I hope this material is a strong resource for building the student's vocabulary to increase their skills in oral and written communication. At the same time, they can have fun learning about different topics like doughnuts, Krispy Kreme, slogans, start-up capital, musical terms, etc.
Since the theme is on 'sweet', I chose the subject on 'doughnuts' which is a very popular pastry and I think the children can relate to easily. To make it more interactive, I wrote part of the article and I created questions for the children to do some research on and they finish the article on their own. There is also a page on writing ideas or projects like writing an interview, a survey, a food blog, research on fried dough around the world.
After using this resource, please leave me some feedback on this material. I appreciate your support. Thank you for your kind interest.
