Dear Lena, 
my impression is that a book only in Greek is much better. If you follow the communicative approach, you can work either with Ellinika Tora by Papacheimwna and Dimitra, Nostos publication, with Epikoinwniste Ellinika by Arvanitakis , Deltos Publication or with Ellinika A , Patakis publication. I would suggest a mixture of them. They all have strong and weak points.
In our website www.hcc.edu.gr you can find some language games for teachers too at http://www.hcc.edu.gr/el/2009-10-07-11-36-01
Good luck!

  Dear Lena,
  I will agree with Maria that there is no "perfect" book, so myself, I prefer to work with a book called "learn greek without a teacher" (!) of Diagoras publications, because it translates everything in English (there are versions with other languages too), it is small, cheap, it presents a wide spectrum of "situations"  and can be used for more than one year. The downsides of it, are firstly that there are no real exercises for grammatical practice, and secondly that it cannot be used exclusively in class. You have to bring extra material (which we do anyway!) and finally it has few mistakes here and there (which book doesn't!) that you have, of course, to notify to your students.
  Finally, at the end of the book there is a small vocabulary section which is only english=>greek and not vice-versa.
  Regards and wishes
