I Can. Action Verbs Song for Kids.

My vacation is over and I am back to share my new songs, worksheets and other educational materials to help ESL teachers make their English lessons more fun and engaging.

Here is my new song I have written to teach the verb “can”, some action verbs and names of animals. This very simple song is suitable for fun activities while singing even with the smallest children. For example, in the course of singing the song kids could repeat actions of animals as seen in the little cartoon below which would certainly stimulate young learners’ cognition and memory.

Spring Song for Children (+ Worksheets)

Spring is a long-expected season of the year especially in those parts of the world where winter is cold and snowy. So spring is a big deal for kids over there. People welcome the nature resurrection and work days that are coming back. Sure, the topic of spring cannot be missed in schools and kindergartens all over the world. There are lots of things to talk about spring during English lessons with kids.

To help fellow ESL teachers make their English lessons dedicated to the spring season even more interesting I and my husband have written and animated our own spring song. My husband is the proud author of lyrics but we would have no problem if you use this song for your lessons with kids as long as you indicate our blog as the source. So here are the spring song video and lyrics:


It’s spring,
All trees are getting green.
It’s spring,
It’s such a lovely scene
It’s spring, it’s spring, it’s spring.

Snowflakes Song for Kids

It's winter now and we have a wonderful opportunity to teach our children some winter vocabulary. One of the most fascinating things about winter is, of course, snow and those tiny beautiful snowflakes falling softly from the sky. So I would like to share my Snowflakes Song with fellow teachers and parents. This song is very simple and can be used for preschool and kindergarten children from 3 to 6 years old.


Here are the Snowflakes Song lyrics

Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Falling, falling, falling, falling to the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Flying, flying, flying, flying all around.

Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Dance in the air.
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Everywhere.
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Fly around.
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Touch the ground.

Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Falling, falling, falling, falling to the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Flying, flying, flying, flying all around.
