What is FunSongs Education?
Founded by the English writer, teacher and composer Charles Goodger, FunSongs action songs are sung and performed by children in schools in many countries around the world. Once children have learnt a new action song, you can use the package’s follow-up worksheets: games, role-plays and language activities.
Useful and Fun!
If you are an English teacher or a parent – or you just want to help your own child get a headstart in English, you will find our material useful, interesting and above all fun!
FunSongs action song packages and e-books are not free. Our intellectual property has value and costs a lot of money and time to produce. Please – if you are only looking for free stuff, visit the British Council website or the thousands of other free English song resources on YouTube. However before clicking away, we ask you to consider the quality of our songs and materials. At FunSongs we do not believe in placing kids in front of a screen. Our approach to learning involves expressive dance and movement. Not passive screen watching and fancy animated cartoons.
FunSongs Bilingual Puppets and Action Song Shows
FunSongs Education is also a TIE (theatre in education) company. Its entertaining workshops are staged in schools and theatres. Find out more about FunSongs Shows.

Today is World Water Day and my students celebrated it with some art activities and the song Water is Everything. It was fantastic!
I recently downloaded Easter! Easter! and my pupils enjoy singing it. I always find these action songs very useful and full of ideas.
In the action songs classroom the learner is aware of enjoying himself and having fun. At an unconscious level the language patterns and regularities are being efficiently absorbed by the learner's mind for later free use. FunSongs is whole body and whole brain learning in which the learner perceives him/herself as doing rather than being done to.
This is one of the best ways of teaching young learners new vocabulary and language with the correct pronunciation. Children love to learn and perform these songs.
I would like to thank Charles Goodger for his action songs Workshop in Cyprus. It was the last conference day and the last workshop I was happy to attend. It was the funniest, the most useful and the most enjoyable workshop I've ever participated in.
FunSongs action songs stand out for their beautiful melodies. The graded worksheets are excellent too. Highly recommended.
