Hello Jojo

  • The methodology reflects the cognitive development of this age group, with an emphasis on movement and receptive skills.
  • Eight units cover familiar topics such as family, colors and food.
  • Simple stories introduce the idea of sequencing and prepare for more complex concepts later on.
  • One-per-semester Activity Books combine language and number work.
  • Star stickers for each unit engage the children in activities and reward them for good work.
  • Additional activities in the Teacher’s Book accommodate different lesson lengths and number of teaching hours, and different abilities within the class.

You and Me

  • Language is presented through a variety of exciting actions and activities, including Total Physical Response (TPR).
  • Reading and writing skills are systematically developed.
  • Memorable songs and chants improve listening and speaking skills.
  • Fun and easy-to-use craft activities help children to learn by doing.
  • A Numbers Book for each level develops numeracy alongside literacy.
  • Star of the Week certificates reward children for progress and achievement, effort, and behavior.
  • Photocopiable assessment sheets help give children learning goals and monitor their progress in achieving them.
Each lesson has a lesson box that summarizes the main activities and language objectives, so teachers can see at a glance what the lesson is about.
Jojo has a pet rabbit called Robbie, who hides in many of the pictures. Children will enjoy looking for him, which helps to develop their observational skills and focus on detail.
Rhythm and melody are very effective in helping children remember language. When combined with actions, music and singing become a fun and exciting way to learn language, as well as to energize the class. Most lessons contain a song, poem or chant, many written specifically for the course to reinforce and extend the unit language.
Children love stories. Stories provide a natural context for introducing language and encourage children to use their imagination. Every unit contains at least one story.
A star shape at the bottom of each page is for children to stick a star when they have finished the lesson. In this way, they can feel excited about their achievements and continue to be motivated.
Three phonics lessons per unit (two in You and Me) present sound-letter relationships and phonemic awareness. Each phonics lesson includes a simple and memorable song or chant, and exciting artwork to bring each letter to life.
There are vocabulary and letter stickers for each unit of Hello Jojo, for children to identify matching pictures and place stickers in the correct place. Guidance on when to use these is found in the teacher’s lesson notes.
An art and craft activity in every unit involves a minimum of teacher preparation/clean-up time, and helps children learn by doing, as well as developing fine motor skills.
A picture dictionary at the back of Hello Jojo shows the target vocabulary words and corresponding pictures from each unit.
