- Song: Farm animals song
- Learning Objectives: This song will help learners review farm animals vocabulary and help kids remember animal names by the sounds these animals make.
- Key Phrases/Sentences: The dogs on the farm go woof! woof! woof!.
- How to use: Turn on the music and the video. Let the students listen and watch once or twice. Break down the song and teach. To do that, tell students you will sing one part of each line and they will complete it.
Students' Line: The dogs on the farm go...
Teacher's Line: woof! woof! woof!
After this, change roles.
Teacher's Line: The dogs on the farm go...

Keep doing this with the other lines and before you know it, your learners will be singing the whole song without any help. That's how you get these phrases and sentences firmly implanted in their brains.
- Why use songs in English Lessons?
Research has shown that young learners can absorb words and sentences twice as fast if they get to sing them. Songs also have the added advantage of reducing stress in the classroom. Every teacher knows that when students are less stressed, they learn better. Above all, songs are a great way to have fun while learning a language.
