Post The Hello song as a warm up (problem)
Hello everyone,
While searching for songs for kids for the last few days i found a site full of kids songs to download or buy. I'm planning to buy one but unfortunately this site does not provide the lyrics for the songs yet you can listen to parts of the song before you buy it. I listened to the song i want but i can't seem to figure what they are saying in the middle of the song. I hope you could give it a try and let me know what are the missing parts of the lyrics so i can decide if it's useful for my class or not!
It's a useful site for teachers who use songs in their classes as well.

The missing parts are:-
" Hello Hello
It's good to say Hello
.........................................and right hand......something!
Hello Hello Hello
Hello Hello to everyone we know
our friendly way to start the day
Hello Hello Hello!"

the link to this song is
http://www.musick8kids.com/mp3store/det ... sku=182502

you can listen to it directly
thank you. :roll:

You should think about the Super Simple Songs collection. They are great and have a couple of hello and goodbye songs. Their site has 30 second clips of the music, but also has youtube video links to teachers using their songs.

Mark even did a podcast with Devon about half a year ago... Here are the links

Hello. Hello.
It's good to say hello.
Put on your grin and come right in.
Hello. Hello. Hello.
Hello. Hello. To everyone we know.
Our friendly way to start the day.
Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello!

Good Job, Mark!

I listened to it 3 times and couldn't make anything out except the hello part....

then again, I'm legally deaf. (100% loss in the left ear and 80% in the right)

Am I the only one that thinks maybe a song shouldn't be used as a teaching aid if the native speaker that is supposed to be teaching it can't even understand the lyrics?

I'm not saying this to be derogatory. I run across a song from time to time that I can't understand a line in the lyrics....but these songs are usually found in pop culture and not in an educational setting. It's my opinion, that education materials should be very clear and easy to follow and understand.

You've got a point here
Yet
I've listened to several songs from that site and liked many but didn't even bother to get them because they include difficult vocabulary for my students. Therefore, I choose a short easy one except for the line I asked for. If you give it a try and listen to it you'll find out that it's much more easier than any traditional nursery songs natives usually use!
Besides, this site i took the song from is meant to be for classroom use.
I think my students will do a good job at it and like it alot.

I think if you slow it down, it will be OK. That's what Devon does in his Super Simple Songs CDs. They sing one time really slowly as an introduction and sometimes just introduce the words. Afterwards they sing the songs a little faster but still slower than normal. His CDs are excellent (I have both) but the same idea can be used here.

Are you using this song as a warm-up just to signal the start of class?

(the Super Simple Songs website is here http://www.supersimplesongs.com/ )

Yeah, I saw that after I posted and I was checking to make sure the link was correct. :oops:

Then, I remembered getting an email from Devon telling me they had just released a third CD.

Okay, being that this is an English teaching website, I should correct mine...

"There's 3 cd's now" should be "There are 3 CDs now"

Well,
This song is going to be used for an introduction as u said in a modal class to welcome the guests. If you have a better suggestion am all ears .
I posted a topic about the "modal lesson" in games and activities and i was wondering if you all know what it means? I guess our teaching methods vary alot.[/quote]
