Skeleton Soup

Target English: Body Parts, a Halloween story that anyone can understand!
Target grade: All ages (but maybe a little scary for the very young ones!)

This song is in the Teacher's Set

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

Doing a play of this song is the very best way to practice the output. Or you could try ...

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.
