Many years ago, when I was just starting, I used to spend hours and hours trying to find material for my little kids. There were many things, but yet, being a music lover, I didn’t like everything I saw. One day I came across Super Simple Songs and my long teaching material list was reduced quite a lot.
I remember using their songs for the first time. I can still picture my little kids’ faces and the fun we had! It was important for me because their material was useful, entertaining and well done, but also because seeing the way they worked with little kids inspired me to try new things with my students.
When you are new at teaching, you ask yourself “Will I be able to do that one day?” quite a lot. At least I did! I saw them and I admired them so much for their original ideas and their energy that I wished that at least I could imitate them just a little bit.
They have gone so far, that it makes me proud when I see that Messi’s kids listen to their songs or that you can hear their videos at the back of some of the most famous Youtube Vloggers because their kids watch them too. They went from creating videos mostly for English teachers to becoming one of the most favourite channels for kids all around the world. I think they are a great example of how far you can go when you work hard.
Some of my old favourites:
Five Little Monkeys
You can’t teach numbers up to five in a funnier way! 🙂
Hickory Dickory Dock
I can still hear my kids laughing at that cute elephant ♥
Ok, let’s face it! Those kids are probably almost finishing school 🙂 but they are so cute! I learnt the song with this video and I taught it to my students. We had so much fun with this one!
Who Took The Cookie?
When I used this song with my kids there was not a video, except for the one in which their students are playing the game, but this version is beautiful. Kids love this game!
