Count to 1000 by 1s Video

Counting is really important for young English learners (ESL, EFL). Numbers are useful in every day life (shopping, cooking) and numbers also contain many important phonetic sounds of the English language. More below video:

It takes a bit over 23 minutes to count to 1000 by 1s in this video. That is a long time to sit through a video! However, you can use parts of this video to practice. For example, try counting from 1-100 one day, and the next 101-200.

Put it on in the background before class, and let your students listen to the numbers. These are just a few ideas. I hope you find this video useful for your classes and students! Happy Teaching!

New Song: What’s Your Favorite Food? Song for Kids English Class

Food is a very important topic in Children’s English Classes (ESL, EFL).  The new Favorite Food Song teaches 10 food names. More below the video:

How to Teach

Pre-teach the vocabulary in the lyrics using flashcards, or pictures. Then, watch the video and sing the song with your students.

Lyrics

What’s your favorite food? (repeat)

I like hamburgers
I like hot dogs
I like pizza
I like eggs

What’s your favorite food? (repeat)

I like rice
I like salad
I like sandwiches
I like spaghetti
I like soup
I like cake

What’s your favorite food? (repeat)

After the song, you can practice the vocabulary by asking the students, “What is your favorite food?”

Flashcard Game

Put the food flashcards on the floor or table. The students ask the teacher, “What is your favorite food?” The teachers answers, “I like pizza” for example. The students who touches the pizza flashcard first wins the round. Ask each students their favorite food so that they all can have a turn answering.

I hope this is helpful! Be creative, and make a great class using your own ideas and I hope this song can be a part of what you do. Happy Singing!
