Dinosaurs have big mouths to roar, roar, roar

Traffic Light Song – New Actions Song for Children’s English Class

The Traffic Light Song is a new fun action song for your classes (ESL, EFL). It practices the colors green, yellow, red and fun actions. More below video!

How to Teach

Start by teaching the actions that go with the colors: green is go, yellow is slow, red is stop. You can practice all of the actions before your play the song.

Game Idea

Have the students line up on one side of the room. Call out the different colors, for example “green!” and the students have to go. If they make a mistake they are out. For example, if you say “yellow” and they stop, they are out. If you have many students, only have a few go at a time for safety and judging reasons.

Check out the new video on Youtube, song also streaming on Spotify, iTunes and more! Search for “Traffic Light Song Dream English Kids” Happy Singing!

New Fruit Counting Song

Fruit counting songs are a fun way to practice counting and fruit vocabulary in your young learners English class (ESL, EFL). Teaching tips and lyrics below the video:

Teaching Tips:

This song gets faster and faster, so it is a bit of a challenge. If your young learners are having trouble holding up their fingers, you can replace that with a clap. Practice the song once slowly with no video before trying the video.

Lyrics

1 apple, cha-cha-cha
2 bananas, cha-cha-cha
3 grapes, cha-cha-cha
4 strawberries, cha-cha-cha
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, oranges, cha-cha-cha
(repeat and get faster!)

Have fun and happy singing!

New Action Song: “My Feet Are For Walking”

My Feet Are For Walking Action Song

This is a fun and simple song for your children’s English class (ESL, EFL). Your students will love the fun and silly actions. Have a look at the video before reading the below teaching tips.

Lyrics:

My feet are for walking (x2)
Walking fast, walking slow
My mouth is for talking (x2)
talking fast, talking slow
My legs are for jumping (x2)
jumping fast, jumping slow
My arms are for swimming (x2)
swimming fast, swimming slow

Teaching Tips:

Start out by teaching the lyrics to the song. Teach them slowly, and have the students repeat after you. If you are not sure about pronunciation, have the students repeat after me as I say the lyrics at the beginning of the video.

I recommend teaching the actions and lyrics at the same time. This helps the students remember. Practice the walking fast, and slow part. This will be really fun for the students, and get them ready to sing. Finally, give the song a try! If you teach your students weekly, try to sing this song at the beginning of class every week for a month! By the end of the month, I’m sure the students will be singing very well. Encourage the students to sing in a loud voice.

Game idea:

Start a phrase of the lyrics and the students have to finish. For example:
Teacher: My feet are for….
Students: walking!
Next, ask a student to come to the front of the class to start the phrase.

“My Feet are for Walking” is available on YouTube, iTunes, and Spotify
