The Flying Turtle Work-Book
The set of materials sold for 9800 Won includes the twenty-eight page colored booklet, a monochrome workbook, and an audio cassette. There are thirty such sets in the series. I can remember being overwhelmed when I saw them all on the wall in Kyobo; there were dozens of little kids sitting nearby dutifully reading books. This workbook has a number of activities based upon the story. The first activities involve tracing words and matching words with definitions. The next activities depend upon the cassette: listening and circling the correct picture, listening and circling the missing word, and listening and unscrambling the sentence. More scrambling and crossword exercises follow, as well as exercises in identifying speakers and matching questions with good answers. In the next exercise, one needs to match a picture with a statement from the story. The two final exercises in the first half of the workbook involve arranging statements in the correct order and finding the right question for the supplied answer. Further activities involve the cassette. Notes at the end present eccentricities of English idiom. The last pages seem to give a complete Korean text of the story. The tape has lively musical background. It first reads through the text in the colored booklet, with various voices, and then takes up a number of the activities already described. It tells the story again completely in the course of the tape. The reverse side of the tape seems to be in Korean with a few spellings in English.
