BACK TO SCHOOL song "HELLO" song

This is a very energetic song that our Music teacher suggested teaching our students last year and I am planning to include in my curriculum this year too. First I made a PowerPoint with the lyrics and then turned it into a video and posted it on YouTube.

You can download the PDF file of the lyrics below

PRONOUNS (he, she, it, they)

Pronouns replace proper names and nouns and they are introduced to students at an early stage. This is how I do it.
 First I check that my students understand the meanings of the pronouns, then they point to their friends or real objects and use the correct pronouns and later they practise by answering questions, like "Who's he/she?" "He is/She is (the name)". 
Once they have mastered the difference between the pronouns they can do the worksheets below as a reinforcement.

MOTHER'S DAY SONG (for kids)

I came across a very cute rap song from Sid the Science Kid that can be used for a Mother's Day celebration. Besides turning it into a printable, it occurred to me that I could also make a lyrics video that could be used in the classroom while teaching the song. And voila here you are, a new milestone achieved: a worksheet and a lyrics video specially for you to enjoy teaching:)

EARTH DAY and RECYCLING (songs and a poem)

It is so important to raise environmentally aware students and kids these days. It's good to celebrate Earth Day but Earth needs our protection every day.
Recycling is the only way to protect sea animals and to decrease air pollution and global warming. And this education should start in early childhood, at school and at home, by teaching and by serving as an example.
I am planning to include more Recycling and Earth Day activities in my teaching curriculum this year. To start with, I searched for some cute songs and poems (unfortunately the authors are unknown and the links take nowhere) and turned them into printables.
They are simple and memorable and most importantly, the songs are sung to the tunes of popular songs so you don't need to spend time teaching the tune:)

CHRISTIAN PRAISE & BIBLE SONGS (for kids)

Bible Songs can be a wonderful way to teach children an early appreciation for the Word of God, the Bible and can help them understand more about the love of God thus laying the foundation for good morals and spiritual principals.

I teach at a Catholic School so kids are used to singing Praise Songs every day in the morning, after each recess and they enjoy it. As an EFL teacher, I also love including Praise Songs in my teaching program, especially during the Christmas and Easter time.

So here I have chosen 6 of my favourite Bible Songs with the Youtube links below so the students can sing along while watching and listening to the videos and why not also learn some gestures.

The other day while I was scrolling down my Pinterest feed, I came across a Bulletin Board saying:"Dinosaurs couldn't read... now they are extinct" and immediately thought that I needed to turn it into a poster to use as a visual for my students. It's both funny and true:)And here you are. A cute display for your classroom:)

Friends At School ( poem)

0 comments

I found this poem online (unfortunately the author is unknown) and immediately decided to teach it to our second graders. It was a great opportunity to have a good discussion about friendship, good friends, their actions and character traits and reminding the students what one should do to be a good friend and to have good friends.

ICE CREAM (poem)

While looking for an end of year poem online, I came across a few Ice Cream poems but felt like making a few changes in them. This is the final result that my first-graders enjoyed reading. They also did a few fun ice cream activities along with learning it.
