Pinocchio

The Pinocchio song is my all time favourite. I recommend it for every teacher who has young learners in their classrooms.

ESL children has so much fun with this song and dance.

You can teach them the lyrics and the movements then you can reinforce the vocabulary with some follow up activities. Whilst your young kids enjoy the dance, they can easily learn the vocabulary.

This activity can also be used later as a reward at the end of the class.
