Using songs in the classroom
Advantages
• Help to develop language & pronunciation
• Natural and enjoyable repetition
• Can use to develop all skills
• Motivating and fun
• All children can participate
• Build confidence – children can learn ‘chunks’
• Help to develop cognitive skills (eg memory)
• Good tool for teacher – managing the class and adding
  variety and pace; cross-curricular topics; short, fixed time
• Develop cultural understanding
• A social shared experience
Think about…
• Level of your students – Is language
  appropriate? Adapt language?
• Age of your students
• Space in the classroom – can students do the
  song at their desk? Do they need to move?
• When to use songs: A warmer? To move from
  one activity to another? Introduce new
  language? Revise language? Channel energy?
  To get everyone’s attention? Change mood?
