- Song: How are you? Song
- Learning Objectives: This song will help learners review key words and sentences used in our greetings lesson, especially when asking about the well-being of others.
- Key Phrases/Sentences: Hello! How are you? I am fine, thank you.
- 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: Hello, Hello
Teacher's Line: How are you?
After this, change roles.
Teacher's Line: Hello, Hello
Students' Line: How are you?
Keep doing this 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.
