She's leaving home - The beatles
Take the first 8 lines of the song, and write each line on separate pieces of paper. Next, stick the 8 pieces of paper on the wall around the classroom. You can be adventurous and hide them in various places.
Divide the students into groups. 1 student will be the writer. The other member(s) then have to find the lyrics, read and memorize them before returning to the writer. The write then writes them down. Students may not shout out the lines from across the classroom.
When they have all 8 lines written down, play the song and have them put the lines in order.
Chris Moore, Yamanashi, Japan
She's leaving home
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free.
She is leaving home
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years
From Sgt Peppers album
