Little Buffalo Magazine
We love magazines so we were delighted to receive a copy of Little Buffalo magazine. It is a new children’s magazine which is all about learning English through creativity, it is aimed at children aged from 5 upwards. Its goals are to improve English language skills, inspire and increase creativity.
Established by Lucy Burton, formerly an English teacher who taught in Hanoi, Vietnam, Lucy says: “I saw the need for a simple yet educational English magazine for children learning English. Once I returned to England, I found there was just as much need for it here for children to improve their English skills.”
“As weird as it is to say, the robots are on their way. Jobs and life will be automated, however 3 things they can’t do just yet and won’t be able to do for a while is have common sense, be creative and have empathy. So I feel creative jobs will survive and its teaching young learners critical thinking, imagination and problem solving will give them the advantage over others in years to come.”
With the success of the first issue, The London issue, we have subscribers across the word from Vietnam, India and Greece as well as many teachers and parents in the UK.
They have just released issue 2, Homes around the world. In this issue, children learn the various Homes around the world, what we do at home and they can build their own city. Nouns are our grammar galore subject with simple and easy to understand pages and activities. Children can draw fun monster faces whilst learning to count and read about kids who live in both Vietnam and London, England.
To celebrate Halloween and the release of issue two Homes around the world, they have launched a Spooky home creative competition.
Its a drawing competition where children can submit their scariest, most creative and extraordinary Halloween house ideas.
Win 2 copies of Homes around the world with special Halloween goodies and sweets. To get children drawing this October with Inkober, the worldwide drawing challenge, they have created this fun half term activity which is for all ages.
