The power of song!

OK, this isn't everybody's cup of tea, but it is effective, if you have time to do it!  I love fitting vocab that we are learning to existing melodies.  So far since we came back, my classes have had The Wombles of Wimbledon (Months in German), Here we go, here we go, here we go...(Months in French), Row Row Row your Boat (Days in French) and Frère Jaques (Numbers in French).  It's not just me...the power of song has been used in Ian Turnbull's Learn to Learn lessons too, to illustrate assessment and success criteria!  And I've heard Andrew Jones rapping too, with his crew from 8RWY doing Henry VIII facts!  Go on, unleash that inner diva!
