Transcript

  • 1. Collaborative Songs For the English Classroom mcromeroriera@gmail.com
  • 2. Collaborative Song mcromeroriera@gmail.com Level: all levels Materials: a song lyrics Aim/Content: Listening. This is a great activity to review grammar tenses and vocabulary too. You just need to pick an appropriate song depending on your interests. You might also want to work a romantic song for Valentine’s Day or other topics such as drug addiction (tutoring sessions).
  • 3. Collaborative Song mcromeroriera@gmail.com Procedure: 1. Once you have the lyrics of a song, split it into sentences. Find a song which is not too repetitive or short. 2. Then, write each sentence in a sheet or a cardboard. 3. Give one to each student and arrange them in a circle. 4. Tell them to hold their bits up so that everybody can read all sentences. 5. Students have to change places as they listen to the song. The goal is to order all the sentences correctly. 6. Play the song several times to give them time to check their answers. 7. Finally, show them the correct version: use a handout or project it.
  • 4. Collaborative Song mcromeroriera@gmail.com Variation: Instead of sentences, provide your students with photos/pictures from the song. Make them put them in the correct order while they listen to the song. This activity is good fun since it involves lots of movement and group discussion!
