Because English for elementary school in Indonesia is categorized as a local content and the local content should include the value of the local knowledge of their respective regions. The local value can be adapted from the local wisdom and folklores can be said as one of the local values. By integrating folklores in the English for elementary schools, the students learn two things simultaneously. First, they learn friendly English story based, and second, they learn their own culture.
