Do you use songs in your lessons? How? Watch how Seema uses them and then share your ideas below!



Hai marina, i am a new member of this group and actually a new teacher at a primary, i am kinda having trouble with my kids so i was hoping you can help me out with the kids song, id really appreciate that.

John Lennon's 'Imagine'Sting's 'Englishman in New York'Johnny Cash and June Carter's 'If I were a carpenter' for grammar teaching (Second Conditionals)  

I would try any pop songs that match the students' age group. I'd suggest to use lyrics language complexity as one of the criteria to select songs as well as trying to choose "singable" songs.

Hello everybodyI wan to share idea about songs for adultsI do next - print the lyrics and the text has empty spaces I mean gaps and foreign students have to listen to the song very attentively recognise the missed words and write them down - believe me it is good job for students and the do really like it =))))

Such a fantastic way to motivate!  The results portray the passion and vice-versa! Brilliant promotion, thanks for sharing this...

This is an enjoyable video and Watching is entertaining.I want to use these ideas in my classes.If You publish songs and rhymes for nearly every subject for kids like eating-drinking,health,shopping,introducing family etc.,We,as language teachers,will have great chances in our classes.Thanks for such videos and I will keep following....

That's where I'm headed! Hope someday you'll buy my CD for your class! :)

I like your viewpoints about teaching songs and about the use of action verbs.However,I'd like to add that a choice of songs should be taken into account. For instance "Head,shoulders,knees and toes" song is a wonderful support to introduce new vocabulary about the body. Besides it's motivating !
