Using songs to open a lesson is a great strategy to get students to practice the language you are teaching. Don’t let your songs get boring. Change the way you sing your songs using a variety of “voices”. Here are a few of my favorites. What are some of yours?
This 51-page collection of ELD and ESL songs and black lines are perfect for every classroom with second language learners. Open every lesson with a song or chant from this rich collection of ELD based lyrics and watch your students’ fluency grow. Volume I includes 22 songs/ chants, lesson ideas and activities that will raise the oral academic language of your students to new heights. The songs and chants are sung to familiar popular songs or the lyrics are used in call backs or chant style tunes.
