Jack and the Beanstalk story from the British Council for Early Years

Below is something I found here at the stories page of the British Council's area for learning English. The pages have lots of games, puzzles and stories with .PDF pages to work from afterward too. 

Jack lives with his mother, they are very poor. One day Jack sells the cow for some beans. His mother is angry, but the beans are magic!


The giant in this story has a magic harp that can sing and a magic hen that lays golden eggs! 

Imagine that some of the things in your house are magic. Tell us all about them. For example:

  • My slippers - when I wear my magic slippers I can jump as high as my house.
  • My red giraffe - when I go to sleep with red giraffe I have nice dreams. 
  • My school bag - if my school bag is heavy it grows wings and can fly to school.
