New Halloween Songs and Videos

It is time for Halloween again, it sure comes up fast every year. This year I’m excited about Halloween because I have some brand new songs. I’ve been testing these songs out in my classes and the students are already enjoying the songs.

7-12. Sing-Alongs! 

Below I will talk about some of the songs from the album.

Let’s watch the Good Morning Halloween Song video: 

I hope you enjoyed that. This song is a great warm-up song for your morning classes. To teach this I would teach the actions and the lyrics first. Then get play the song. The students will follow along quickly because it is an action song.

Jumping on Halloween. Let’s watch the video: 

Jumping on Halloween is an action song with some stops in it which young learners always enjoy.

The last song on the album is Good Afternoon Halloween: 

This is the same song as the Good Morning Halloween song, but it is for your afternoon classes. I am using this song as well and it is a great way to start the Halloween classes

I will be making videos for all of the songs on Good Morning Halloween throughout the month on the Dream English Kids YouTube channel. There are also sing-along tracks. All of the songs have a sing-along track you can use those if you want to try to have your students sing without my voice. Also, you can use the sing-along track as background music if you are doing activities or Halloween games.

Please check it out Good Morning Halloween on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon. 

I hope you find the songs useful for your classes!

My First 100 Words in English Chant – Learn One Hundred Words

My new video is a chant video with one hundred words. I made this video because I feel that children can learn so much so quickly in English class (ESL, EFL) so why not give them one hundred words to learn. I have been showing the video in my classes with great success. I say one hundred words in four minutes. The topics covered are: Animals, Food, Vehicles, Numbers, Jobs, Colors, Family, Clothing, Body Parts, and Actions. See below the video for Teachers tips!

Teachers Tips

  1. Before the video starts, show the thumbnail to your students and see how many words they already know.
  2. Encourage the students to repeat after me while watching the video.
  3. After watching the video, ask your students what words that they can remember from the video.

As always, I encourage you to come up with your own ideas to make this song and video a useful learning tool for your classroom. Visit the Dream English Kids Youtube channel to watch this video and many more!

We talk about how to relax in class, what to expect from the students, and how watching Sesame Street can help you with class ideas. You can listen to the whole conversation at ESLTeacherTalk.com.

Halloween Songs For Kids Learning English and Special Needs

Halloween can be so much fun in the classroom! I like to make October a super fun month and incorporate as many games, and songs as possible in the classes. Recently I’ve found that if I spend the first 20 minutes of class time singing songs, dancing, and playing active games then the rest of the class goes much smoother. This is especially important for younger students learning English from Ages 2-8 years olds.

With that in mind, I have gotten back to creating songs with more actions.  Here is an example of a new song that incorporates the following actions: walking, jumping, running, ducking, and knocking. Plus the song has favorite Halloween characters like a bat, ghost, and witch. Have a look at the song here: Halloween Walk Song

I recommend this song as a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit in your classroom! There are many more Halloween songs and teaching ideas at Dream English Halloween. So have a look and Happy Halloween!
