The Garage Sale Teacher’s Guide and Workbook (photocopiable) contains the full text of the beginner level reader, The Garage Sale.
Complete with extensive notes for new teachers/tutors, activity pages, and audio CD, this version can be photocopied for extensive or intensive reading in class, for homework, or for use in a conversation group, to get students talking.
The Garage Sale is a light-hearted ‘mini novel’ in six chapters, set in the same street as Maybe Next Year and Six Stories from Hope Street and told in simple past tense (‘Beginner C’ level: high beginner or transitioning to post-beginner).
Ben and Tori have a visitor coming to stay, but their spare bedroom is a mess: it’s full of old furniture, toys and books. Tori’s nephew, ‘Lucky Luke’, comes to the rescue, offering to help them have a garage sale - but things go wrong when he accidentally sells their dining table!
