Learn how to teach songs by rearranging them

This activity will help you teach songs by rearranging the lyrics. Students will then put them back together.

For this ESL activity:

  • Copy the lyrics of the song from a book.
  • Cut each line of lyrics out and mix them up on a desk.
  • Have your students put them back in order.
  • For large classes, make a copy for each group.

Alternatively you can:

  • Mix up the lines of the song and write them on the board.
  • Have your students come up to the board. You can also select one student at a time to come up.
  • Have them put the sentences in the correct order by numbering them.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
