TIPS TO USE SONGS

  • Do not expect little kid´s pronunciation to be clear or perfect: it will gradually correct.

  • Sing at normal speed.

  • Exaggerate rhythm and actions.

  • Always reinforce the meaning of the words with actions.

  • Use always the same action so children associate the words with the action.

HOW TO USE SONGS

  • Play the whole song first, so the children can hear it in full.

  • Teach the chorus first.

  • Teacher says or plays one line and children repeat the words being the “echo” and singing the line back to you.

  • Add more lines and actions.

  • Use visual cues to start your songs: a picture or an object.

  • Record the children singing!
