New Video: Alphabet Actions for Children’s English Class

Learning the ABCs is a really important part of children’s English class (ESL, EFL). It is a good idea to teach the alphabet with books, games, activities, and of course songs! Here is my new Alphabet Phonics Song:

Give it a try in your classes. You can pre-teach the actions, or just play the video and have the students follow along.

Game Idea:

After singing the song, get your students in a circle. Toss a ball around saying the letter of the alphabet and action that goes with it. For example:

Teacher: A add (do the action from the video)
Student 1: B bounce (bounce the ball, or pretend to)
Student 2: C catch

You get the idea! Keep going until you get to Z. You may have to help the students a bit if they can not remember the letter or action. Give it a try, and have fun!
