Easters Songs (1): To 10 little elephants / Indians: "1 red, 1 blue, 1 green Easter egg; 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 pink Easter egg; 1 white, 1 brown, 1 black Easter egg; 9 Easter eggs for me!" (Submitted by Annette).

Easter Songs (2): To the tune of buns in the bakers shop: "9 Easter eggs in the chocolate shop, I like chocolate lots and lots, Along came (child's name) with (local currency) one day, She/he bought an Easter egg (or you could incorporate the color of the egg they prefer) and took it right away".  I cut out and laminated large egg shapes and blue tacked them to the board. The children could then come and choose the color they wanted.  (Submitted by Annette).

We also have our own Easter song for download: The Easter Song!

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes: Have the Ss do all the actions to the song on the tape (touching the parts of their body along with the song).  After that have a speed round at a fairly quick pace.  Have a final round at high speed.  All kids love to do it fast.

Check out our downloable version of this song.

Hokey Pokey: A fun song for body vocab.  Arrange the Ss in a circle and sing while doing all the actions.

If You're Happy And You Know It: Before you play the song practice yelling out commands:

Clap your hands (clap, clap, clap)
Repeat again.
Stomp your feet (stomp, stomp, stomp)
Repeat again.
Shout horray. (HORRAY!!!)
Repeat again.

Note: do each command once at a quicker pace and then they should be ready for the CD!  (Submitted by Tania Bibbo).

Musical Flashcards: Ss walk around some flashcards in a circle as some music is playing.  When the music stops T shouts out a flashcard and the Ss must race to step on that card.  The first S to step on it keeps the card (1 point) and the game continues.

Number Group Game: Play some music and have your Ss walk/skip around the classroom.  Stop the music suddenly and call out a number (up to the number of Ss in your class).  The Ss must quickly get together in a group of that number.  Any Ss who didn't make it sit out until the next round.

Rainbow Song: There are a few things you can do with this song.  Variation 1. Lay out colored paper in front of your students in the order in the song, and get them to touch each color as the song is played.  Variation 2. Lay out colored paper in a random order and get the Ss to arrange them in the order of the song.  Variation 3.  Have the Ss lay out their coloring pencils in the order of the song.  "Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue.  I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too".

Check out our downloable version of this song.

Ring A Ring A Roses: Over exaggerating the sneezes and the fall to the floor makes this song all the more fun.  "Ring a ring a roses, pocket full of posies, Atishu Atishu, we all fall down".

What Time Is It, Mr. Wolf?: Ss stand against the back wall of the classroom and the T stands at the front with his/her back to the Ss.  The Ss chorus "What time is it, Mr. Wolf?" and T replies "It's (e.g. 5 o'clock)".  The Ss then take (5) paces towards the T.  At one point T replies "It's dinner time!" and chases the Ss back to the back wall.  Any Ss tagged by the teacher have to sit out in the next round.

Where is Pinky?: Good practice for "Where is...?"  Students hide hands behind their back.  Teacher sings: "Where is pinky?, Where is pinky?" (show left hand, moving only the pinky finger), "Here I am" (show right hand, moving only the pinky finger, two pinkies greet each other) "Here I am", "How are you today, sir?", "Very fine I thank you", "Run away"  (hide left hand), "Run away" (hide right hand).  Continue with all fingers and thumb.  Students sing along and love it!  (Submitted by Anna Gates).
