Show and Tell: First Steps

Show and Tell First Steps (co-authored with Amadeu Marques & Branca Fabrício). São Paulo: Ática, 2001.

Show and Tell is a 5-volume collection of English for Brazilian children. It is designed for primary education in Brazil (Ensino Fundamental 1) and it is built on the assumption that English learning can be not only fun but also educational more broadly, helping the children reflect about cultural values and attitudes, differences and participation in the social world. 

Show and Tell First Steps is designed for the 1o ano of Ensino Fundamental (former Classe de Alfabetização/CA) in Brazil and it contains 6 units around the following themes: 

  • All about me!
  • My body
  • My school
  • My family
  • I love animals!
  • I’m hungry! 

The work emphasizes oral practice (listening, speaking) through music, games, projects and other activities that foster interaction and collaboration among learners.
