January’s new downloadable worksheets

The King of Rock 'n' Roll is also the King of Number 1s - Elvis Presley (who would be 84 on the 8th of this month) has had 21 chart-topping singles in the UK chart, compared to The Beatles’ 17.

All Shook Up: this was Elvis’s first UK Number 1, in 1957, remaining on top for 7 weeks. Regular contributor Mena Bianco’s worksheet features a vocabulary activity for parts of the body.

Hound Dog: this only made Number 2 in the UK, in 1956, but Elvis’s version is considered one of the greatest recordings of all time. This low level worksheet has a crossword using images.
