Skeleton Soup

Target English: Body Parts, a Halloween story that anyone can understand!
Target grade: Elementary 1 (although it is scary!) to Junior High school 1

This song is on Volume 12

I usually don't do any preparation for this song, and just get the kids to point to the body parts when they come up!
It's amazing when the kids can understand a full story in English!

Recommended Games

We're just compiling a load of games to use with the new CD 12 songs on the VIP forum now.
I'm sure you'll find lots of really cool stuff!

Suggested Game

The children throw a die and colour in the skeleton. It is great for feet, foot, arm, arms, etc. Make it a race to see who can finish first.
