Singing with Dan Zanes and Claudia Eliaza – The Wheels on the Bus and More!

I’m a big fan of Dan Zanes, so I was super excited that he could join me in the studio to sing some songs! Dan’s wife Claudia, an amazing singer, joined us and we had a musical blast!

Join us as we sing the Wheels on the Bus Song, a classic children’s nursery rhyme. Be sure to sing-along and do all of the actions.  More songs from the session coming soon!

The year is off to a fun start with the New Jobs Song, Pet Song, Winter Clothing Song, A to Z Vehicles and more! Great for young learners of English. In today’s post I give some fun tips on how to use these new songs in your classes. Learn more below!

A to Z Vehicles Song

I currently have three new song in the A to Z series. These song are made to help children learn the alphabet, while learning vocabulary and phrases. Please check out the Food A to Z and Animals A to Z song. The vehicles A to Z song teaches vehicle names like ambulance, and motorcycle, and watch out for the Nose Car!

More to come in this series, so stay tuned!

Do You Have a Pet? Song

I have a pet goldfish. How about you? This fun song teaches students how to ask and answer, “Do you have a pet?” Many students have pets, so this is very useful. We also learn cat, dog, fish, bird, and elephant in English. Sing this song and then ask your students the question, “Do you have a pet?”

Job Song

I have been wanting to write a Jobs Song for a long time. I’m happy I waited as I’m really happy with the results. From the comments I’m getting on this video, students around the world are enjoying the new Jobs Song!

After singing the song, have your students take turn acting out the gestures from the song. The other students have to guess the job!

A Part two with more jobs is coming soon! Subscribe to the Dream English Kids Youtube channel to see it when it comes out!

ABC We-O-We

This song is a fun action song for the classroom. It is a bit of a challenge, and kids love a challenge! We make our bodies into the ABC letters, and do gestures for three words that start with A, B, and C. Give it a try with your young English learners or preschool class! After the song, challenge your students to say all of the vocabulary words with the gestures from the song!

Winter Clothing Song

It’s cold outside, brr, brr, brr! My students love this song, probably because it is so silly and fun. This song teaches, “put on my jacket” and more winter clothes. The refrain of “brr, brr, brr” keeps it silly and memorable!

I hope you find some use for the new songs from Dream English. It is always my pleasure to create and share these songs with the world. Thanks for your continued support of Dream English!
