Head, Shoulders…

I have always being against using mainstream kids songs. However, I am backing up on my word. I hate to contradict myself. It’s annoying.

Well, I decided to use this song with my Second Graders and it’s really working.

I like this version and my students too. We even watched the video this week and they were singing it and doing the movements.

The Coolest Alphabet Song Ever

A couple of weeks ago, well, all started… wait from the top. I’m a Jimmy Fallon fan. I follow the Tonight Show channel on YouTube.

Almost at Halloween, Daniel Radcliffe was a guest on the show and he sang a new song for me and it’s totally awesome.

Two weeks ago, I used with my students and I told them to write a word for each letter of the alphabet, then I raised the intensity to write 3 words of each letter. Now I am thinking for making each student sing the part of one letter.

I found this one with the lyrics. I used this at class in Computer lab.

Little Snowflake

littlesnowflake

Last year, to my shame, I partipated on the Christmas Festival. Why shame? Well, it was last notice and thankfully this was the warmup song of December.

Little Snowflake Video. It’s not a bad song and it reviews part of the body and the kids like it. I made quick signs with the snowflakes and the ribbons and that was it.

I think it of redoing it this year but with more preparation.

Rhyme words: Match in pairs

Working on little ones, I realized that they need to see the words alone to see the rhyme, not in a song yet (that’s next class). For 3rd and 4th grade, it’s an easy activity to get confident with rhymes.

As always, this is a good way to learn more vocabulary.

So, I made a printable to use in class. The first time was chaos and didn’t get the idea quickly. The second time, it was so fast that I had spare time (very weird!).

Instructions:

  1. Cut
  2. Make pairs (First after any pasting, otherwise chaos)
  3. Paste
  4. Color and trace words.

More bullying songs: all about guns

Previously, I posted about Songs about Bullying.

This week, I was in the supermarket and I listened one song in particular. Then on the way back home, I got a blast from the past and remember another song.

Both songs talk about bullying and using guns.

Which songs?

The newest one is Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People. The song is super catchy. Last year, I hummed a lot until I paid attention to the lyrics. There has been a lot of controversy about this song.

The other one is Jeremy by Pearl Jam. This song is from the 90’s and caused more controversy because it was based in a true event.

ABC

At almost a year blogging, I realized I haven’t post the most basic and easiest lesson: ABC.

It’s easier to Mexican because it’s the same alphabet and we have heard the song at least once in every preschool show on television.

Our students? Yes, they know the song but sometimes they cannot say the letter separated and randomly. That’s the tricky part.

For printables:

  • Folder ABC. You paste or staple on the folder for easier storage. (No cutting required)
  • Folder ABC version 2. As before, to be glued in a folder. Different pictures, the same as classroom ABC.
  • Classroom ABC I made a bilingual ABC for students to color and paste around the classroom.
  • 1/2 page ABC. The bilingual ABC but now 2 x 1 page. Cool pocket size!

For music (YOUTUBE is awesome and SCHOOLTUBE also):

Singing Songs… 2012 results

For the first unit, we have to sing songs for 3rd grade, also 4th but differently.

The results were more or less. I took video and for me it’s ok. I could be better if I took more time rehearsing.

The videos are uploaded in SchoolTube (Great if you don’t want the major broadcasting of youtube, also it’s all about schools)
