Letter B Song. Bee Song for Kids Learning English ABC

This is my second video of the simple ABC songs series for kids learning English. This one is a letter B song and it is about a bee. The song is really simple as it’s targeted at preschool and elementary school children that are starting to learn English as a foreign language. It’s also easy to memorize just like any nursery rhyme even if kids do not know all the words yet. I really hope this little song of mine will help you introduce the letter B in a fun way to your ESL students.

Fall / Autumn Flashcards and Vocabulary Cards

As we are getting closer to the end of fall I'd like to share some fall / autumn flashcards for fellow ESL teachers to use during the last month of the season.

I really like this time of the year where I live. It's pretty much colorful and the weather is quite enjoyable. I's neither hot nor cold and the trees are bright with red, yellow and brown leaves. So fall / autumn is definitely worth dedicating a lesson or two to learn some English vocabulary related to the season. I hope my flashcards will help you to prepare some quality lessons dedicated to fall / autumn and related holidays such as Thanksgiving.

I'll be adding new video as soon as I create them. I hope I'll be able to create a nice ABC songs collection for myself and my fellow teachers who work with little children.

This first song is naturally a letter A song. It's about an angry alligator. So here is the video:
