We hope you’ve had a lovely weekend #athome surrounded by your loved ones, and practising English! 😀
Firstly, we would like to thank all of our readers for making us such a popular option for students to find information and activities. We are simply, and truly, honored.
Today we are going to talk about children. They’re teaching us a lesson about how to handle this lock down situation by being patient and working on the classes and homework their teachers send them. At Euroschool, we’ve always strived for fun and educational classes where kids learn new vocabulary and grammar structures, where they’re also able to practise and perfect them but, mainly, where they have fun!
That’s why today we bring to you some multimedia activities that we think are both popular and extremely useful when teaching the little ones. Scroll down to take a look!
- Sing & Learn. By clicking on this link, you’ll be redirected to a site with different (level-based) songs to sing along to. They also have different topics such as ‘the zoo’ or ‘the town’ so that children practise vocabulary related to them.
Once you’ve chosen a topic (and or a level) click on the picture to start the activity. Download the pdf file below the video to go through vocabulary and, if necessary, check the lyrics. Now we’re ready to play the song, sing along!
After having sung and had fun with the different characters and scenarios, check the activities on the pdf file. They’ll help your children to reinforce level-appropriate vocabulary. In addition, the exercises follow the Cambridge English Young Learners exams layout, so they’re great practice both to prepare the exams (in the event they’re going to take them) and to practise the language learnt in a children-friendly way.
While we find singing extremely fun, we’re aware that some children may not. If this is the case, check this link. It includes different types of activities (also kid-friendly, of course) that will help children to review and learn new vocabulary and grammar while having fun with the different characters and stories of the unit.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Keep your eyes peeled for more ideas and resources, we’ll be back in a couple of days with more! Until then, #stayhome #staysafe, have a lovely week! 😉
