- Song: Family song
- Learning Objectives: This song will help learners review family members vocabulary and help kids remember key phrases and sentences used when talking about family.
- Key Phrases/Sentences: This my family. Father, mother, brother
- How to use: Turn on the music and the video. Let the students listen and watch once or twice. Break down the song and teach. To do that, tell students you will sing one part of each line and they will complete it.
Students' Line: This is my family.
Teacher's Line: father, mother, me
After this, change roles.
Teacher's Line: This is my family.
Students' Line: father, mother, me
Keep doing this with the other lines and before you know it, your learners will be singing the whole song without any help. That's how you get these phrases and sentences firmly implanted in their brains.
- Why use songs in English Lessons?
Research has shown that young learners can absorb words and sentences twice as fast if they get to sing them. Songs also have the added advantage of reducing stress in the classroom. Every teacher knows that when students are less stressed, they learn better. Above all, songs are a great way to have fun while learning a language.
