Nazo's Listen & Do
This is an activity suitable for kinesthetic students(ss). The activity can be done with the song "I am sailing" by Leo Sayer.
1- The teacher(T) first writes the following words on the board: fly, sail, die, cry and hear.
2- The T asks the ss to predict what the story is about.
3- Then, s/he asks the whole class to stand up and mime the actions the T does (e.g., T opens both arms and flies, swings both arms and sails, makes a gun with his/her hand and dies, put both hands under his/her eyes and cries, and finally takes his/her hand to his/her ear and hears)
4- Next, ss listen to the song and do the actions.
5- Finally, after listening to the song, and doing the actions, ss in pairs imagine they are the writers of the song and write a love letter to their girlfriends or boyfriends.
HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOURSELF!
P.S: If you could write feedback to me after you have done this activity with your calss, I'd be grateful.
Thanks a lot.
