Animal Nicknames This works best with intermediate to advanced kids (not so much english for the advanced ones) Before class make up a sheet of paper with all of the students names on it with a blank line next to each name. Include your own name also. Hand these out to the students in class. Then tell them to look carefully at each of their other students.

Songs For Children - help children learn English. We started to have so many songs that were suitable for younger learners that we made this separate section only for those songs. Some of these songs are suitable for the very youngest of learners, i.e. three or four years of age. And the suitability of the songs goes up to early teens. If you have any ideas for improvement to this part of the site or to send in song-based lesson plans, don't hesitate to contact us.

Happy and you Know it - refresher I find that one of the most terrifying things is when you are completely done with the lesson and you still have 10 minutes to go, and reviewing the lesson would go over about as well as giving an inspirational talk on how marching on the Trail of Tears was great for the Native Americans quads, calves, and burning unwanted pounds... it wouldn't go well. So what I've found is, or remembered is the Happy and you Know it song... and it works great on young kids and self-conscious teen agers.You remember: If you happy and you know it clap your hands....blah blah. Well change it around.

Differentiation: setting learning objectives and outcomes Schools will use different systems for setting objectives, but it's expected that pupils will know – by being told or by seeing these displayed on the board – what the learning objectives are. I would strongly advise that pupils copy down these learning objectives, or stick them into their books so that they can refer to them both during and after the lesson. When setting your learning objectives you need to be clear about what you expect the learning outcomes to be. Brown - Rhymes, Stories and Songs in the ESL Classroom The Internet TESL Journal Joy L. M. Brownjmbrown [at] una.eduUniversity of North Alabama (Florence, Alabama) The Value of Rhymes Stories and Songs Many of the traditional songs, stories and nursery rhymes that people learn as children are ingrained in our culture.

1,197 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.
