Songs for Kids’ Classes

Songs are a great way for young learners to improve their English pronunciation, enrich their vocabulary and just have fun learning English. Singing a song involves repeating the same thing several times, so it’s a drill. By repeating the chorus and verses of a song, a student practices certain grammar patterns, learning them, as well as vocabulary, in context, which is very important. If you are a teacher, try using the songs below in your classes. And if you are a parent, sing the songs with your child. We’ve prepared activity sheets and explained what each song is especially good for. So, get ready for a purposeful and enjoyable activity!

Grammar in the song: first conditionals, the imperative mood

Topic: My Body, Feelings

Note: While singing, it’s better to do all the things the song is about: clapping your hands,  stomping your feet and shouting “Hurrah!” Thus, the children can not only learn English through the song but also have a meaningful physical activity break.
