  1. 1. Songs<br />Melissa García<br />Alan Padilla<br />Mónica C.<br />
  2. 2. Using materials<br />In order to have an interesting and fun activity, teachers of ESL and EFL need to get creative and use different materials. One of the most common and effective material is the music and here are some examples of its use. <br />
  3. 3. 7 ways to useSongs<br />Cloze or Fill-In-The-Blank Worksheets One of the simplest ways to introduce a song is to remove all the grammar target in the lyrics.<br />For example, if the grammar objective is to teach adjectives, and the lyrics are, "I'm so tired," the fill-in-the-blank worksheet will show, "I'm so ______.”<br />
  4. 4. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Scrambled Lyrics Another popular activity is to cut up all the lyrics. Divide the class into teams and give each team a set of lyrics. Play the song and have them try to put all the lines in the correct order.<br />
  5. 5. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Act Out The Verb If the song you are playing uses a lot of verbs, play the song for them once without any lyrics. Every time the students recognize a verb, they have to act it out. <br />
  6. 6. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Listening for a PurposeTo introduce a song to the class, divide them into two teams. Explain that the song contains a certain grammar objectivethat you have been studying. If someone hears that grammar part of speech, they must raise their hand. If they identify it correctly, their team gets a point. <br />
  7. 7. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Theme-based Songs If the song you are using is not related to a specific grammar objective, but instead to a theme, that's okay! Play the song first without the lyrics and have students write down anything they hear that is relevant to the theme: nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.<br />
  8. 8. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Combinations of Topics Of course, the previousactivities can be combined or altered to make different activities. <br />For example, Act Out The Verb and Listening for Points could be combined to make a fun and competitive activity. <br />
  9. 9. 7 ways of using Songs<br />Sing the Song! After any activity, remember to take a few minutes and sing the song as a class! <br />Singing the song after these games will give your students a sense of accomplishment.<br />
