Favourite animal to reinforce vocabulary

It's an easy nursery rhyme you can start your ESL class with, to get your young learners in the mood.


It goes with the same tune as the traditional British song: The farmer's in his den. But of course it has different words. The lyrics is really easy so you can use it with very young learners. The aim of the rhyme is to practice the names of the animals.

Children go around singing and asking each other about their favourite animal. Whoever answers the question, pretends they are the animal, they answered with. Give every young learner the opportunity to ask and answer the question.
