Lyrics:

Do you have a pet? Do you have a pet?
p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, pet

I have a dog. I have a dog. woof, woof, woof
I have a cat. I have a cat. meow, meow, meow

Do you have a pet? Do you have a pet?
p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, pet

I have a bird. I have a bird. chirp, chirp, chirp
I have a fish. I have a fish. glub, glub, glub
I have an elephant. I have an elephant paw, paw, pawoo

You don’t have a pet elephant!
That’s true! But I want one!

Lesson Plan ideas

After the song, I always ask my students if they have a pet. Of course some do not. In that case, they can answer “No, I don’t.” If you have animal flashcards you can play a simple touch game. Place the flashcards on the floor. Have the students ask the teacher, “Do you have a pet?” the teacher answers, “I have a dog,” then the students have to touch the dog card. Whoever touches the card first wins. If you have a large class, you can have two or three students at a time play the game. I hope this is fun and useful for your classes!

New Animal Alphabet Song: A to Z Sing Animal Names for Young English Learners

Learning the alphabet is really important for young learners of English (ESL, EFL students). There are many ways to learn the ABCs, from the traditional ABC song we all know, using flashcards, or practicing writing. More below the video.

This song contains 26 animal names from A to Z. Children can learn to associate a letter with an animal name, like “A is for anteater. B is for bear.” They can also practice writing all of the letters and animal names from the video. Here are all of the animals in the song, from A to Z:

Anteater
Bear
Crocodile
Dog
Elephant
Fish
Goat
Hyena
Iguana
Jaguar
Kangaroo
Lion
Monkey
Newt
Owl
Penguin
Quail
Rabbit
Snake
Turtle
Urchin
Vulture
Walrus
X-ray fish
Yak
Zebra

Have some fun with your classes, singing along, writing the animal names, drawing pictures, and being creative with A to Z Animals!

Favorite Animal Song- A New Original Song for your Classes Young Learners of English, ESL, EFL

In this song I had a lot of fun combing a few question phrases, wild animals, and a bit of action! See below for teaching tips and vocabulary used in the song:

Target Vocabulary:
Questions: Do you have a favorite animal? Can you see the lion? Where is the lion?
Vocabulary: zebra, lion, elephant, crocodile, monkey, and tiger.
Phrases: I like zebras. It’s a lion.

The idea of this song and video is to teach the animal names in a natural way. It is a bit different than drilling the same question and answer over and over. I hope that this type of song will help students be able to have a conversation in a natural way.

Teaching Tips:
Watch the video with the students. Depending on the students age or level, you do not have to pressure them to sing along. They can watch and learn. After watching the video, you can use flash cards to make sure they learned the animal names.

Next, try asking a few questions like in the video. For example, “Do you have a favorite animal?”

Animal Matching Game:
Use small game cards to play the animals matching game. Put the cards face down, and the students have to pick up the cards and find a match.
MES-English.com has great game cards for this. Kids love this kind of game. As the students turn over the card, make sure they see either the animal name, or a phrase like “It’s a lion.”

I hope you find these ideas helpful. Be creative, have fun and your students will too! Happy Teaching!
