1 Number Song | Today’s Number Song with Matt and Friends

I’m excited to share the new Today’s Number Song video: Number 1. This is a new series. More below the video!

Today’s Number Song: Learning to Count Numbers and Objects

This fun new series introduces the concept of numbers and counting to young learners of English (ESL, EFL). A children’s English class is not complete without some counting. This video teaches the number 1 and counting one apple, one t-shirt, one dog, and one car.

Activity idea: After watching the video, ask your students to find one object in the room and bring it to the front of class. Each student can take turns saying the number 1 and the name of their object. For example, “1 pencil.”

I hope you find this video helpful for your kids English classes.

Happy singing and learning!

What Time Is It? Song for Teaching Children Time In English

What time is it? It’s time to play guitar!

I made this video a few years back, but still find it fun and useful for children’s English class. Sing the song and do the actions!

Actions help children remember vocabulary. For more on this concept look up TPR (Total Physical Response). And movement is fun!

Back to Basics: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes is a great warm-up song for English Class

One of my favorite ways to start a new English class for young learners (ESL, EFL) is to sing Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. The song is fun, simple, and active. After this song, the class can sit down and settle down for a fun class.

Recommended Ages: 3-7 Years old
Target Vocabulary: Body Parts

Give the song a try in your class! You can also download a free MP3 of the song here.  Happy singing!
