I Like English!

Awhile back I was teaching some 5-6 year olds at a preschool, each class had about 30 students. When I asked the students what English meant, I only got blank stares. I have since repeated this experiment at other schools, and found it to be pretty common. So, I decided to make a little chant that says, ” I like English!”.  The I Like English Chant is a free download at Dream English.com and is great for warming up a class. First you can ask the students if they know what “I like English” means, and teach them how to say it. The rest of the actions in the chant are really simple, clap your hands, hands up, etc. Then during the “I like English” part I have them point to themselves during “I like” and put their hands in the air for “English!” So give it a try, and have fun. You can find the “I Like English Chant” on the Dream English site by clicking here.
