Songs activity helps so much in kinesthetic and auditory students. If you want to apply song to your class, You can try the following matter.

Action songs
“As you listen to the song, I want you to mime the things/ animals/ letters you hear/ that we
“Mime the action for the person who is singing (for example when the father sings, pretend to
stroke your beard)”
“The first time that we listen, just do the actions that you hear. Then we will sing along when we
hear it a second time”
Physical pronunciation practice
“Chop your left palm with your right hand with the rhythm of the song/ sentence/ word stress”
“It you hear ‘can’t’ raise your left hand, and if you hear ‘can’ put up your right hand”
“Jump to the right if you hear /sh/ and jump to the left if you hear /s/”
“If the word has two syllables/ beats touch your shoulders, and if the word has one syllable/ beat
touch your nose”
“Run and touch the flashcard with the sound that you hear”

While you are teaching by using the songs, you may have to use these expressions.
• The first/second verse.
• The first/last line.
• The chorus.
• Let’s sing a song!
• Everybody join in.
• Everybody together.
• Just the boys. Just the girls!
• Listen carefully.
• Listen first, then sing.
• Do the actions!
• Copy me!
