santa1 Over on the Dream English site with the free Dream English Jingle Bells download there a bunch of teaching ideas for the song. This year I added a new downloadable and printable lyric sheet of the song. This should make it easier if you are teaching the song, and for older students you can make copies and practice reading the lyrics together! Check out the song here.

Learning from each other

Jingle Bells was the second free download I added to the site last year, and it was a big success. Teachers from all over the world emailed me, and told me their great ideas for teaching the song, and one teacher even sent me a video. After watching this video, I started using her idea of having the kids say the action twice after I sing it in the song like this, Me ” I can jump”  students ” jump, jump!” You can watch this in the video below, I think it is a great idea for small kids. It is this type of sharing ideas that led me to the current version of  Dream English, and although I give away a lot of free materials and songs, I have learned so much in return it has been more than worth the effort. To that end, I just added a Forums to the Dream English website, so please give it a visit, and share some of your knowledge with us.

And without further ado: Dream English Jingle Bells performed by students in Thailand. Thank you Shari for sharing this.
