    Songs for Children

    I've used many of these songs over the years when teaching. Children can practice pronunciation, and learn the flow of the English grammar.

    For many of these songs, I also teach gestures (actions) to go with them. In my opinion, children learn and remember more if you can incorporate auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning. Other songs here, are just fun for children. If you have extra time, or you are teaching singing, then maybe these can be of use to you.

    The Karaoke songs, all come with lyrics that are helpful if you are teaching a song. Some of these songs are good for a warmer, just to get them moving.

    Feel free to add onto this list. I will add onto it over time. I'm currently teaching singing for a club activity.

    ^^Kingwilly and Somtamslap..these songs are not suitable for children.

    For a mod, that gets to post his own teaching stuff..I'm quite disappointed that you post these songs for children. What kind of teacher are you? Anyway, I will just stop posting here now because that and the one somtam posted are not on topic. So immature.

    fer fcuks sake woman - how it will work is a little later hillbilly will come along and see what the pair of monkeys has posted and he will just bin the posts - you don't need to get on your high horse

    then hillbilly will probably green you for your effort at posting some good stuff in one of his pet forums

    I will work on getting them all in a pdf. version and is it possible to post a pdf. on teakdoor? Also, there are some of the lyrics for these songs, and more on this website. It is a great site for children's songs, and you can buy them off the internet too, and download the songs in .pdf version.
