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.
