849 FREE ESL Songs For Teaching English Worksheets Music can be a great way to connect with your students. Even students who aren’t fluent in English often know the words of popular songs phonetically, which makes these songs ideal resources for teaching your students certain forms of grammar, as well as vocabulary. Many students are happy to work with the unusual phrasing of song lyrics, because they’re learning new meanings for a piece of music that already has meaning in their lives. You might never have noticed it before, but many songs’ lyrics involve just one single tense - which means that as soon as you find a song that contains the tense you want to teach, you’ve got the makings of an exercise that your students will love. They’ll get to brag to their non-English-speaking friends that they know exactly what the song’s lyrics say, so they’ll be extra-motivated to stick with you throughout the activity to make sure they learn those meanings correctly.

New Music And Songs Official Site: | @steviewf SWF is the dream of and moniker of artist, musician, and self-described mystic, Stevie Weinstein-Foner. Stevie’s songs of love and longing roll from his debut album, Let It Be Told, like mantras blasted from the radio of a brightly painted VW van cruising along a metaphysical highway of endless summer.

The Secret to Teaching Math Facts: Number Bonds Below you will see why I think teaching math basics with number bonds is the best way for your homeschoolers to learn math. Over our last four years of homeschooling, I have used several different math curricula. Some I liked better the others, but they all had their own strengths and weaknesses. One of the strengths of one particular curriculum we use, Singapore Math, is their method of teaching basic math facts. Instead of teaching fact families by rote, Singapore illustrates fact families using number bonds.

All About the Game - Math in the Game The mathematical thinking begins when players encounter the maps in each wing. These maps are game-playing clues. Students need to solve them to find out where you are supposed to go the game. To do that, they have to look at the relationships demonstrated there and find the sequence. In the proportions wing, the map shows a missing 'target' room (marked by a star), surrounded by rooms with letters and numbers. Players can either use an equation or their sense of number relationships to solve for an answer.For example, this might be a clue map your students encounter in the Proportions wing: Students might use their number sense to see that they are dealing with multiples of 6, looking for the room before F30 (5 x 6).
