These videos will make it easy for you to teach action songs

  • Our teaching action videos have been made to help teachers learn action songs fast. They are for teachers, not students!
  • Action songs should be taught through expressive actions associated with the language chunk.  As soon as your learners associate the sound of the language chunk with the concept suggested in the expressive action, a link is created in their minds. This accelerates and reinforces learning, memorisation and recall.  
  • Don’t show your learners the  words of the action song until you have taught it to them. Reading and writing involve different neurological processes to understanding and singing.

To view samples of our teaching videos with subtitled lyrics and explanations of expressive gestures, click on the action song icon. If you decide to buy and download the action song package, you will get access to the full teaching actions video plus a dedicated e-book with graded worksheets, activities, games and lesson plans.
