INTRODUCTION

Working with kids you must use a wide range of songs. They can be used with specific teaching points in mind or just for fun to motivate children. I use some songs naturally to teach or reinforce grammar points. They may be integrated into lessons with a particular grammar focus and provide much-needed variety, while contributing to the overall aim of a lesson. Particularly at lower levels when students or children are still learning basic key grammar patterns, songs can play a role as input.

On Learn English Kids there are several songs which can be used in this way. For example the song ‘I’ve got a Robot’ is useful to practice the structure ‘can/can’t’ as well as providing reinforcement of the vocabulary of parts of the body. You may download the accompanying worksheet which contains a basic listening activity on ‘can/can’t’ which could be used as the basis of further oral practice.

For a slightly higher level the song ‘Over the Mountains’ provides practice of the present continuous in the context of traveling. The chorus refrains e.g. ‘I’m driving in a car’ are repeated several times and children can produce their own sentences afterwards using the activity worksheet.

Longer songs with a wider variety of structures and vocabulary are more suitable for the development of listening skills generally. Some of the songs on the website which are longer and more difficult are useful to develop general listening skills.

Many of the songs are suitable for singing in class or for an individual child to sing along to. Community singing in class brings the benefit of total participation from all students, especially if accompanied by actions or mimes. The total physical response approach is particularly suited to younger learners. Children really enjoy singing along and it can really improve motivation. Singing can also improve the pronunciation and intonation patterns of the students, especially younger.


I'm driving

I'm driving in a car

I'm driving in a car

I'm driving in a car

I'm driving in a car

Over the mountains

Through the trees

Travel the world

And the seven seas

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm driving in a car and

Over the mountains

Through the trees

Travel the world

And the seven seas

I'm travelling on a train

I'm travelling on a train

I'm travelling on a train

I'm travelling on a train

I'm travelling on a train

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm driving in a car and

Over the mountains

Through the trees

Travel the world

And the seven seas

I'm riding on a horse

I'm riding on a horse

I'm riding on a horse

I'm riding on a horse

I'm riding on a horse

I'm travelling on a train

I'm sailing on a ship

I'm driving in a car and

Over the mountains

Through the trees

Travel the world

And the seven seas

Over the mountains

Through the trees

Travel the world

And the seven seas

The  Circus

When the circus comes to town

With the lions, the horses and clowns

You’ll have lots of fun

Come and see with everyone

You’ll have the time of your life

The strong man lifts weights with one hand

And the jugglers turn cartwheels and land

You’ll have lots of fun

Come and see with everyone

You’ll have the time of your life

The trapeze artists fly overhea

There is a ringmaster dressed all in red

You’ll have lots of fun

Come and see with everyone

You’ll have the time of your life

See the clowns make everyone smile

As they all fall down in a pile

You’ll have lots of fun

Come and see with everyone

You’ll have the time of your life

When the circus comes to town

With the lions, the horses and clowns

You’ll have lots of fun

Come and see with everyone

You’ll have the time of your life

I’ve Got a Robot

I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house
I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house

He's got fingers, he's got toes
He's got eyes and a mouth and a nose

I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house
I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house

He can wash and sweep and clean
To me, he's a person, not a machine

              


I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house
I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house

He can cook and mend and sew
He does my homework
My teacher doesn't know – oh!

I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house
I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house

I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house
I've got a robot, a robot, a robot
I've got a robot in my house

My Computer Mouse

I’ve got a mouse

I play with every day

He runs across the mat

And his tail is long and grey

He doesn’t like cheese

He likes playing games

He’s not afraid of cats

He hasn’t got a name

He’s my computer mouse

He’s my double click, single click

Run around the mat computer mouse

Left click, right click, double click. OK!

I’ve got a keyboard

I use it every day

He’s got a lot of letters

We’ve got a lot to say

We write a lot of emails

‘Cause we’ve got lots of friends

When we’ve written them

I ask my mouse to click on send

He’s my computer mouse

He’s my double click, single click

Run around the mat computer mouse

Left click, right click, double click. OK!

He clicks on my screen

I turn my speakers on

He opens up the programmes

On my CD Rom

Then we turn up the sound

And we turn off the lights

And we play lots of games

And chat with friends all night.

The  Ballad  of  Harry  Holster

Harry Hoster was a baddie

He robbed trains so did his daddy,

They had a dog. Its name was Lou.

Their dog was a daddie too.

One day Harry robbed a train,

Harry won’t do that again.

I can tell you why because…

On that train was Mr. Wozz.

Mr. Wozz jumped from his seat,

He caught Harry by the feet

Ben and Sally, Rick and Meg,

They caught Harry by the leg.

Harry Hoster’s story ends

In jail.But what about our friends?

That afternoon at half past four,

They went through a big white door.

I’d love a camera too.

I’d like a silver scooter

And a new pair of shoes.

But it really doesn’t matter

If I don’t have jewels or rings.

Friends are my treasure –

Life’s most important things.


I’m  Lost

I’m lost. I’m lost. I’m lost again.

Please, help me find the way.

Dreaming

Climb the highest vountain

Fly to any star

Walk the darkest forest

Where the dragons are.

Swim the longest river

With jungls on each banks

Find the wreck of a pirate ship

That hit a rock and sank.

Find the smallest island

With the sharpest rocks.

Look under the palm tree

Find a treasure box.

Cross the widest desert

Sail the deepest sea.

Fight the biggest monsters.

Anyone can dream.


We’re  All  Going  to  the  Zoo

We’re all going to the zoo tomorrow.

Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow.

We’re all going to the zoo tomorrow

And we can stay all day.

We’re all going to the zoo tomorrow.

How about you,you,you.

You can come too,too,too.

We’re all going to the zoo zoo,zoo.

See the elephant’s trunk swinging.

Great big ears and long trunk swinging.

Eating up peanuts with his long trunk swinging.

And we can stay all day.

See the monkeys scratch,

scratch scratching.

Swinging in the trees and scratch,scratch scratching.

Hanging by their long tails scratch,scratch scratching.

And we can stay all day.


Happy  Holidays

We went away on holiday

To stay with Uncle Jim.

The sea was cold, the waves were big.

We couldn’t have a swim.

On Sunday all the shops were closed.

The pool and playground too.

We couldn’t go to the castle.

We couldn’t go to the zoo.

The sky was grey, it rained all day.

It rained it rained and rained.

We couldn’t have a picnic.

We couldn’t go and play.

The fog came down so thick and white.

We couldn’t see the sea.

The only thing we could do,

To sit inside and read.


Bike  Ride

Along the road,

Out of town,

Up the hill

Freewheel down.

Across the bridge,

Through the wood,

The wind in my hair

Feels so good.

Past the castle,

Around the lake.

And home for tea.

(Hope there’s some cake)


Have  You  Ever

Have you ever heard a child

Laughing out loud?

Have you ever seen the sun

Come out behind the cloud?

Have you ever found a ladybird

And held it in your hand?

Have you ever taken off your shoes

And walked in the sand?

Have you ever seen snow

Falling from the sky?

The world is full of lovely things

That money just can’t buy.

  Начав перевод Илиады поэт вскоре убедился что традиционный александрийский стих не передаст стих Гомера.
