Happy Everyday English lessons center on topics that young students can relate to such as animals, clothes, colors, verbs, and a whole lot more.  Each lesson is a lightweight, self contained software file that has original artwork and a lesson presentation.  They also contain more than twenty built-in games and practice activities. 

These lessons are not Powerpoint or Smart Notebook lessons.  Each lesson is a piece of software developed by me from the ground up.  Because of this, I have a lot more freedom to develop the content and thus, you have a lot more freedom and options when using them in class.

Easily Introduce New Content

Each lessons include two activities to introduce new content to your students.

New Word Introduction Use the new word introduction to guide your students to discover the lesson's new words.  Students are given agency during this activity and can learn the new words in any order.  Use the new word introduction to pre-teach vocabulary before moving on to the lesson's presentation.

Presentation: Each lesson allows students to practice the new vocabulary in an easy-to-follow presentation.

Tons of Activities and Games Built-in!

Built-in activities and games allow students to practice the lesson's content in a variety of ways.  Students can practice spelling, word matching, vocabulary, and language production as you wish. 

The teacher is in complete control of the lesson and can choose what activities and games to use and when to use them.  With all of the included games and activities, there is enough content in each lesson that you can use them for 2-3 classes if needed.

The order pictures and text appear in games is randomized and games can be played over and over again.
